Is the Clean Water Act Losing Ground?

How do you know if waters near you are safe? On the next Your Call, we look at the state of water regulation both locally and nationally. Two Supreme Court decisions left ambiguous language surrounding the jurisdiction of the Clean Water Act, causing a standstill on regulation of many American wetlands and waterways. A bill now in the Senate would solve the problem by expanding the current term "navigable waters" to all "waters of the United States." In the meantime, are we giving an open invitation to water polluters? What standards do you expect of water regulation?
