Why It’s Important
Clean Water Day will bring together speakers representing the governmental, scientific and agricultural areas, as well as local citizens, to discuss the critical topic of how to clean up Vermont’s lakes, rivers and streams. Achieving and maintaining clean water requires a commitment of resources and money. This is an opportunity to make your voice heard in asking the legislature to make sufficient investment to ensure that Vermont water is drinkable, swimmable and fishable.
If you can not attend please take a moment to call your Representative(s) on Wednesday!
To leave a message for your Representative(s) today, you can simply call the Vermont State House at (802) 828-2228
The Sergeant-at-Arms will ask where you live and then will deliver your message directly to your Representative(s) hands. You can just leave a brief message for them, such as:
“We need to invest now in clean rivers, lakes, and ponds. Please support water quality funding.”
If you can’t call or attend you can email your Representative(s) instead.
Thank you for taking action and for all you do for Vermont’s environment!
