Group calls out attorney general Cynthia Coffman for delaying new clean water protections in Colorado

“As the clean water rule goes into effect today, waters from California to Maine once again have the protection of the Clean Water Act,” explained Vivian Nguyen, field organizer with Environment Colorado.   “But here in Colorado– where so many people spend their summers rafting, kayaking or fishing on our rivers – attorney general Coffman has short-circuited these protections for now. This move is particularly outrageous in light of the Animas River spill. We should be doing everything we can to enhance protections for our state waters, not degrade them.”
