Current attempts to roll back federal Clean Water Act protections are a call to action as they could bring about “serious damage” to the Great Lakes, said experts during an Alliance webinar Thursday.“We’re very concerned about the attempt to roll back some of the provisions that protect the Great Lakes,” said Joel Brammeier, Alliance President and CEO.The efforts by some in Congress to weaken the Clean Water Act, which celebrates its 40th anniversary next year, was at the center of the hour-long webinar that attracted 100 participants via phone. Also discussed: congressional attempts to weaken the federal program addressing the spread of invasive species via ships’ ballast water; and to bypass the act to allow the ongoing discharge of coal ash into Lake Michigan by the S.S. Badger car ferry.
