Clean Water Action works to ensure access safe, affordable source of drinking water now, and for future generations. Too often that means fighting to hold polluters accountable for cleaning up their mess, but we know that ultimately, the best way to fight pollution is to prevent it at the source. The more pollution we prevent, the less we have to clean up.

That is what is behind Profiles in Prevention. Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund are recognizing the people and organizations who have made choices that have prevented pollution from entering our environment.  Some actions are big, some are small, but all of them matter.
