Water Keeper Alliance 2021 results

2021 was a year of challenges for clean water, in the U.S. and around the world. But it was also a year of hard-fought victories and heartening progress toward a world in which every person’s human right to clean water is realized. Check out just three accomplishments achieved by the Water Keeper Alliance team below:
Served Ameren Corporation — Missouri’s largest electric utility company — with a notice of intent to sue over continuing unpermitted discharges of toxic coal ash: a significant and ongoing violation of the Clean Water Act. 
Lawsuit demanding that EPA update its water pollution control standards for slaughterhouses, a leading source of nitrogen and phosphorus pollution, resulted in the agency’s agreement to update the standards to ensure they square with Clean Water Act requirements.
Fought for protection of the world’s waters and a hospitable planet on a global stage. At COP26, the dangers of hydropower development as a false solution to climate change were called out and demanded that it not be considered for clean energy credits, by delivering a Global Rivers for Climate Declaration to the UN, signed by 340 organizations in 78 countries. 
Well done Water Keeper Alliance! Congratulations on the results achieved in 2021. We at JPMS are proud to be your partner and strong supporter protecting our earth’s watersheds.
