Our Maryland Priorities

2021 Maryland Legislative AgendaClean Water Action is a national grassroots organization with 53,000 members in Maryland. We work for clean, safe, and affordable water, whether in the streams, rivers or Chesapeake Bay, or from the tap through grassroots organizing, policy work, and campaigns. Check out our current priority campaigns:

From Trash Incineration to Zero Waste in Maryland

How communities across Maryland handle their solid waste has enormous impacts on local air quality, municipal budgets, and climate change.

Safer Septic Systems for Maryland

Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay Cleanup requires nutrient reductions from every sector that contributes to water pollution, including septic systems.

Sustainable Farms in Maryland

We work with a coalition of local farmers, environmental groups, health groups, and businesses to elevate the message of our sustainable agricultural community in Maryland.

Sewage Backups in Baltimore

Heavy rainfall stresses all of our infrastructure: flooded transportation systems, leaking houses developing mold, inundated drinking water sources full of polluted runoff, and sewage systems letting rainwater leak in and sewage flow out.
