Tell EPA: Now is Not the Time to Suspend Enforcement
Save The River is encouraging members to support this effort by our partners at the Waterkeeper Alliance .

"The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a sweeping “discretionary” suspension of its enforcement of environmental laws on March 26 pegged to the COVID-19 pandemic. The agency’s memorandum suggests it will not hold polluters legally responsible for vital environmental requirements such as monitoring, reporting and limiting discharges of pollution to water and air, if EPA agrees that the noncompliance was caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. EPA has set no end date for the policy, which would allow industries to violate federal law without fear of repercussions from the agency.

The effects of this temporary measure may be felt for decades: Once polluted, our water, air, and land can take generations to heal...

Please sign and share this message for EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler, telling him now is not the time for EPA to suspend enforcement."
