We’re restoring Clean Water Act protections.

In honor of the 35th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, we compiled an analysis of all major facilities that exceeded their Clean Water Act permits in 2005. After looking at the kinds of pollutants and the levels at which facilities were dumping, we found that many facilities in the country were violating pollution limits. This report is a critical tool to educate the public about the need to strengthen Clean Water Act protections.
