Rally for Clean Water

November 6, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am

Rally for Clean Water

It is unfortunate but exciting that a case fighting for clean water is going all the way to the US Supreme Court, and Surfrider Foundation is one of the plaintiffs! On November 6, 2019, the highest court in the land will hear arguments regarding Maui County’s Lahaina Wastewater Reclamation Facility, which discharges treated sewage into groundwater and makes its way to the Pacific Ocean. The case is extremely important for the future of the Clean Water Act.

On this extraordinary occasion, we would love to have some “Coastal Defenders” show their support for clean water by being outside the court that morning. We are planning a rally in front of the Supreme Court on the morning of November 6th, from 7:30AM to 9AM. Please email the Chapter Volunteer Coordinator at Volunteercoordinator@dc.surfrider.org if you want to join us. Also, there is a Facebook Event here – https://www.facebook.com/events/2427095367411221/

The Court has strict rules. Paper and cardboard signs are OK, but going onto the steps of the building is not. Bring your own homemade sign about clean water if you want.

The Maui Chapter began fighting this almost a decade ago, and the court case began in 2012. More about that here.

And we thought this was won a couple months ago, but the Mayor in Maui County is not agreeing with the County Council. More on that here.
