The Water Environment Federation (WEF) wishes to congratulate the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on reaching its 40th anniversary and recognizes the agency’s leadership and support in efforts to protect our nation’s environment and public health. Since 1970, EPA has been working with states, localities, citizens, and private and public entities such as WEF to successfully tackle threats to air quality, waters and land.

The EPA was established on December 2, 1970 in response to growing public demand for cleaner water, air and land. This effort was a result of the first Earth Day celebration earlier that year where an estimated 20 million Americans gathered to show the political leadership that there was broad and deep support for the environmental movement. The new agency was tasked with the challenging goal of repairing the damage already done to the environment and to establish guidelines to help Americans in making a cleaner and safer environment.
