MCE & Clean Water
MCE is working with the Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) to reduce untreated sewage overflows into local waterways and secured full Clean Water Act protections for 90,000 miles of streams and rivers and over 2,000 lakes. Did you see MCE's Brad Walker make an appearance on The Daily Show this summer to shine a spotlight on Mississippi River degredation at the hands of our federal government? MCE was founded in 1969, which has given us the opportunity to take the long-view on issues like clean water. We hope you will join us for a fun #Beer4Water event that supports our work.
