Letter: Keep our water clean before it's too late

Congress is pushing procedures to block clean water rules. Corporate lobbyists are playing pay to play with their bribes — better known as political donations.

I want clean water for all living species. I do not want to see a world where I have to buy all of my water in 12 or 20 oz. bottles, like Flint, Mich., does.

Coal needs to stay in the ground. Industry, agriculture, and every person needs to step up and do their part, before it’s too late.
