Clean Water Fund
Clean Water Fund (CWF) is a nonprofit organization that develops strong grassroots environmental leadership to campaign successfully for cleaner and safer water. Since 1974, CWF’s national programs – which build on and complement those of Clean Water Action – strive for collaborative solutions to protect drinking water, and reduce and prevent water pollution at the source. CWF advocates for Putting Drinking Water First, which means prioritizing drinking water protection from watershed to tap in all decisions, from how we grow our food to how we build our communities.
Recent highlights of Clean Water Fund’s work include:
- Fighting for strong freshwater protections and mobilizing more than 75,000 people to oppose Clean Water Act rollbacks that threaten millions of miles of streams and more than half of the nation’s remaining wetlands.
- Getting lead out of drinking water through the Lead Service Line Replacement Collaborative and innovative local projects in state offices, including Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
- Advocating for better policies to protect drinking water from toxic power plants, harmful algae blooms, and oil and gas operations by exposing problems with state and federal programs in an ongoing series of reports.
- Advancing upstream solutions to protect people, especially children and vulnerable communities, from harmful PFAS chemicals.
