Everybody should have the right to clean drinking water.
“I believe citizens have responsibilities to their waterways. We, as citizens, ought to support regulations that make sure our water is clean. We need to establish criteria. Right now, we have only one criteria, and that’s just for nitrate levels in drinking water. There’s no rule for phosphorus, there’s no rule for bacteria except on swimming beaches.”
