Healthy waters underpin our tourism and recreation economies, thriving businesses, our favorite paddling, swimming, and fishing holes, and safe drinking water. Sadly, water pollution in Vermont is resulting in problems such as pervasive cyanobacteria blooms and contaminated drinking water supplies. Polluted water has put the health of Vermonters at risk, decreased property values, and threatened Vermont’s vital tourist economy.
We can’t afford to put off protecting our children and all Vermonters from toxic chemicals for another year. We need Vermont legislators to swiftly pass S.103 – a bill that will take important steps to better protect Vermont families from toxic chemicals.
