Welcome to the Federal Water Quality Coalition

Who We Are

The Federal Water Quality Coalition is a group of industrial companies, municipalities, agricultural parties and trade associations. The Coalition’s members are directly affected by, or have members that are directly affected by, regulatory requirements imposed under the Clean Water Act.

The Coalition participates in federal and regional water quality rulemakings, initiatives and guidance development, through negotiation, written comments and litigation. The Coalition’s goal is to ensure that water quality programs are focused, flexible and founded on sound science.

Member Benefits

The Coalition comments on many EPA and state activities concerning water quality issues, and Barnes & Thornburg hosts frequent conference calls for the various teams to discuss recent developments on those issues.

If an issue is of particular concern to a group of members, Barnes & Thornburg often arranges meetings between members and agency personnel. In addition, Barnes & Thornburg sends regular e-mails to notify members of agency activities, meetings, comment deadlines, and other relevant events as they arise.
