We’re commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, which was passed in October 1972.

This monumental piece of legislation and the burst of federal support for water infrastructure that followed revived polluted waterways across the United States – especially here in Philadelphia. 

Follow along as we honor this milestone with history, events, and ways you can support the ongoing work of protecting and restoring our rivers and creeks!
