Cleaning our water and air means both reducing dirty energy and promoting clean energy. Clean Water helped pass the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Act and the fracking moratorium, and works with a diverse coalition of organizations to persuade legislators that fracking is inherently dangerous to water resources and community health.
Emily Ranson, Maryland Program Coordinator for Clean Water Action, said: "Marylanders are drinking from and fishing in waterways downstream of power plants, and these waterways should not be dumping grounds for power plants' toxic waste. Industry should be held accountable for its pollution. Marylanders should not subsidize polluting power plants by suffering the negative health impacts or paying higher water treatment costs to clean up their mess."
