Support NPDES Program Delegation to MassDEP Today!

Contact the members of the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture (JENRA) to voice your support for Bill H.2777. Maintaining the status quo for clean water permitting makes sense if the current program is working. But it is not, unless endless legal battles, permits 10 years out of date, and crippling regulatory demands are signs of success. It is time to change the strategy. MassDEP successfully manages the federal clean air, hazardous waste, and drinking water programs. Why would clean water be any different? Read MCWRS’ position paper and blog for details on why we know delegation is the right thing to do. The deadline for Committees to report out bills, or send them to study (effectively killing them), is February 7, 2018, so contact JENRA members today.
