Craft Brewers Oppose the Dirty Water Rule
"You can’t make great beer without clean water."
A group of 59 'craft' breweries —partners in the Brewers for Clean Water campaign of the National Resource Defense Council (NRDC)— have sent a letter to Andrew Wheeler, Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency and R.D. James, Assistant Secretary of the Army for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers opposing their respective agencies' proposed 'Dirty Water Rule' to slash clean water protections for waterways around the country.
7 March 2019.
“Dear Administrator Wheeler and Assistant Secretary James:
We oppose your proposal to substantially limit the number of waterways receiving protection under the Clean Water Act. This rule would endanger critical wetlands and streams across the country—waterways that our craft breweries depend on to provide the clean water we use to brew our beer. Beer is mostly water, so the quality of our source water significantly affects our finished product." [cont.]
— 59 craft breweries are signatories to the letter.
