Our Water in Wisconsin:

It's time to protect your water, Wisconsin!

If you believe in the value of our water and need to protect it, support this simple and specific Declaration of Principles for Wisconsin's Water.

  • Every single person in Wisconsin requires and deserves safe, clean drinking water.
  • Wisconsin's water belongs to everyone. There should be no conflict between business needs and public needs.
  • With diverse landscapes and natural resources, local governments and constituents must have a role in creating and implementing policies to protect the unique waters in their jurisdictions appropriately.
  • Clean and plentiful water that supports a healthy habitat for fisheries, wildlife, residents and visitors is essential for a strong tourism industry and a vital economy in Wisconsin.

If you agree, add your name below. Your voice counts and your name counts. Tell your elected officials NOW.
