In 2015, the Environmental Protection Agency passed the Clean Water Rule, which protects streams, wetlands, and other water sources that provide water for 117 million Americans. This bill helped protect upstream sources of water that had been largely unprotected and was the result of over 400 community hearings and 1200 peer-reviewed scientific studies. The current administration is trying to repeal this rule. Send in your comments now to oppose the repeal or reconsideration of the Clean Water Rule.

A discussion with the film's creators will follow.
