Celebrating 40 Years of the Clean Water Act
The piece of legislation that would turn the tide for water quality was signed into law almost 40 years ago. Prior to the Clean Water Act's enactment, water quality in American had decreased significantly. Many remember the Cuyahoya River, catching fire due to the high levels of pollution. Today, the Clean Water Act has provided Kansans, along with millions of other Americans, greater quality water for swimming, drinking, fishing, as well as many other recreational uses.
For 2012, let all of Kansas' citizens work together to improve our waters even more. KDHE invites all users of Kansas water to become Clean Water Neighbors and do their part to protect and restore. Explore many of the programs Watershed Mangement Section implements or contact us for more information on what you can do for Kansas waters.
The Watershed Management Section implements Section 319 of the Clean Water Act, coordinating programs designed to eliminate or minimize pollution that does not come from the end of a pipe. The section develops and reviews strategies, management plans, local environmental protection plans, and county environmental codes intended to control nonpoint source pollution.
