Are the Clean Water Act’s ‘dramatic cuts’ the real deal?

article article Byron Jameson, an attorney and director of the nonprofit American Civil Liberties Union’s Water Rights Project, said that under the new law, “dramatically cutting” the amount of federal funding to states would not be necessary.

That would likely lead to a smaller and smaller pool of state funds for clean water projects.

“The Clean Water Rule is a dramatic cut in the amount we would get in terms of federal support for clean drinking water,” he said.

“I think that would be a very welcome change.”
