Pennsylvania has more polluted rivers and streams than any other state. The fish in many of our rivers and streams are too contaminated to eat. Too many homeowners can’t drink their tap water. Kids are losing their futures due to lead poisoning.
Our waterways face threats from every corner. Fracking, abandoned mines that leach toxic acids, polluted runoff, pesticides, industrial pollution, and aging lead pipes contaminate streams and end up in our groundwater. That’s why we support efforts to restore and protect our streams, river, and lakes.
