In Massachusetts, Clean Water Action is a founding member of the Alliance for a Healthy Tomorrow (AHT), a coalition of citizens, scientists, health professionals, workers, and educators seeking preventive action on toxic hazards. Our goal is to correct fundamental flaws in government policies that allow harm to our health and environment.
A starting definition of sustainable infrastructure includes systems that use, treat, store, and reuse water efficiently at a small scale andthat blend designs into restorative water hydrologies. These would include rain gardens and green roofs, water-efficient appliances and landscaping, decentralized wastewater systems, digestors to recover energy and nutrients from wastewater, and others that conserve resourcesand restore ecosystems and healthy communities. This work is funded in part by the Massachusetts Environmental Trust.
Clean Water Action endorses candidates for office who we believe will be champions for the environment based on candidate's record and endorsement questionnaires.
