Limits on runoff pollution passed.

Wisconsin’s lakes and streams define our state, and our waters are one step closer to safety, thanks to the efforts of our staff and members. In 2008 and 2010, we won strong rules to limit runoff from flowing into our lakes. Now, we're campaigning to make sure these critical limits are enforced.

The biggest clean water victory in a decade.

Wisconsin's lakes, and all of our waterways, will soon be better protected than they have been in a decade, thanks to new guidelines that we helped win. Over the last decade, Supreme Court decisions left more than half of Wisconsin's streams vulnerable to pollution—the same streams that feed and filter our lakes. Along with our allies, we delivered more than 170,000 public comments in support of clean water. And thanks to our efforts, the Obama administration is moving to finalize guidelines that will restore Clean Water Act protections to many of our waterways.
