Did you know the Clean Water Act will be turning 40 this year?

The Clean Water Act established the basic legal structure to better prevent and control discharges of pollutants into the waters of the United States, as well as set water quality standards. The basis for the Clean Water Act was enacted in 1948: the Federal Water Pollution Control Act. That was significantly reorganized and expanded in 1972 and the “Clean Water Act” became its common name.

This weekend grab your camera to share a photo of the water quality you see whether you’re in it or alongside it!
