Choose Clean Water Campaign

SELC has joined more than 60 organizations in a coalition to spur the Bay’s recovery. On May 20, the coalition launched the Choose Clean Water Campaign, calling for federal leadership to help communities clean up and protect their local waterways. For 2009, the campaign focuses on three specific areas:

  • Ensuring that all sources of pollution to the Bay are reduced to no more than the Bay can sustain.
  • Securing changes to federal transportation policy that will reduce pollution from highway runoff and encourage less consumption of land for new development.  
  • Winning passage of strong climate change legislation to address the strain of global warming on our already impaired and stressed waterways.
