Throughout our communities there are small streams which eventually flow to the Hudson River, then on to the Atlantic Ocean. We have been tasked by the Federal Clean Water Act to become stewards of these small creeks, watchful of how much rainwater flows into these streams and watchful of the pollutants carried along the way. In an era of shrinking government and scarce public dollars, we are charged with a challenging task. We know, however that clean water is an investment in the future of our Earth. We urge every citizen to get involved and join us in taking action to protect our local streams, ponds, reservoirs, and wetlands. We need your help. Thank you!
