What Is The Clean Water Act Legislation?

The Clean Water Act (CWA) is a legislation that establishes the basic structure for regulating discharges of pollutants into the waters of the United States, and regulating quality standards for surface waters. Before this legislation was approved in the United States Congress on 1972, only one third of all the fresh water in the country was deemed safe for fishing and swimming; this is what makes the CWA such an important project for all Americans. Another important aspect of The Clean Water Act, is that it has provided a vital role in stopping some bad projects, and also in modifying other ones in order to minimize impact to wetlands, making the Clean Water Act a vital law in the efforts to protect the habitat in the United States.
