    A lot. The Environmental Protection Agency is the main agency that administers the Federal Water Pollution Control Amendments of 1972, commonly known as the Clean Water Act, which was substantially amended in 1977 and 1987. The CWA is very broad, governing point and non-point sources of water pollution, everything from industrial facilities to military bases, feedlots and stormwater runoff systems. The EPA administers grants for water treatment facilities, issues discharge permits that must meet federal requirements, and also protects the nation’s wetland habitats which impact the cleanliness of rivers. The EPA also coordinates with private and volunteer groups who are doing clean-up and other projects, particularly to protect watershed areas coast to coast.
