Quick Facts
It’s a vigilant job to make sure that the clean water act maintains its integrity and continues to monitor what is in our water
– Lauren Carson, Campaign Organizer

In 1972 the federal government passed the Clean Water Act in an effort to regulate and monitor the pollutants that were being discharged into waterways. This act also made it illegal to discharge any pollutant into navigable waterways. Since 1974 the Clean Water Fund has been working to uphold this law by exposing and opposing any federal action or polluter-friendly court decisions that would harm the nation’s waterways.

The Clean Water Fund is a national organization, but they also operate locally staffed environmental protection programs in more than 20 states. These programs work with communities and their

leaders to ensure better water practices are put into place. Additionally they are working with states to help them switch over to cleaner energy sources that protect our water. Clean Water Fund has been helping to fight pollution from fracking for natural gas, or helping to advance the placement of clean renewable energy like wind and solar where it is feasible.

With critical drinking water resources at risk, Clean Water Fund works to maintain the protections that are already in place. In many communities the Clean Water Fund has actually helped protect local water sources from large-scale “water-mining” projects that would bottle public drinking water for private gains.

From rivers to lakes to wetlands, Clean Water Fund treats all water like the precious commodity it is. Their commitment to defending and improving the protections for water has been unwavering for the last 38 years and will continue to do so with your support.
