CLEAN WATER COUNTS IN PENNSYLVANIA State outline of Pennsylvania

To County Commissioners: Clean Water Resolutions Needed Now!


How clean is your stream? According to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP) most recent statewide water quality survey, it's very likely that a stream or river near you is polluted. In fact, nearly one-quarter, almost 20,000 miles, of the creeks, rivers, and lakes that we rely on for recreation, and for drinking and household uses, are polluted. How clean is your local stream? Find out here.

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) is calling on Pennsylvania officials to make clean water a priority, to commit the needed resources, and to ensure that our 83,000 miles of waterways are ALL clean.

Healthy families, strong communities, and a thriving Pennsylvania economy depend on it.

We are urging county commissioners to pass Clean Water Counts resolutions that call on the Commonwealth to prioritize funding and increase investments for clean water. See where your county stands. Your help is urgently needed.

Please show your support for clean water today!
