Protecting America’s Water and Wetlands
PEER is a defender of clean water protections throughout the United States. When government agencies cave to special interests and make decisions that jeopardize the health of our nation’s waters, PEER steps in.
We fight to ensure the government protects all our rivers, lakes, wetlands, aquifers and coastal waters from polluters and special interest groups and to ensure everyone has a safe, sufficient supply of clean water.
Currently PEER is focused on stopping the Trump Administration’s efforts to role back clean water protections, improving the quality of the nation’s drinking water, and exposing the dangers of PFAS pollution and other chemicals in our water.
PEER is fighting the Trump Administration’s efforts to revoke federal protections for countless important streams, wetlands, and other waters under the Clean Water Act »
