Clean Water Action is a one million member organization of diverse people and groups joined together to protect our environment, health, economic well-being and community quality of life.

Our national staff works to secure clean, safe and affordable water; prevention of health threatening pollution; creation of environmentally safe jobs and businesses; and empowerment of people to make democracy work.


ReThink Disposable

ReThink Disposable, a program of Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund, aims to stop waste before it starts. We work with local governments, businesses and institutions, and consumers of single use food packaging to inspire a cultural shift away from the single-use “throwaway” lifestyle.

Get The Lead Out

Lead, unlike many other drinking water contaminants, is usually not present in the drinking water source, but rather results from the distribution system or on site plumbing itself.

Civic Engagement and Democracy

Clean Water Action harnesses the grassroots power of our membership by endorsing in elections from the local to national level to elect progressive environmental champions who will work to protect clean water and fight climate change.

Preventing PFAS Pollution

PFAS chemicals have been dubbed “forever chemicals”, because they are extremely persistent, lasting thousands of years in the environment. Small amounts of the toxic chemicals can cause many serious health problems. Clean Water is working at the national and state level to stop PFAS pollution at the source.

Action Center on Drinking Water and Pollution

The Action Center promotes policies to tackle sources of pollution that pose public health risks in drinking water and to identify and challenge inequities in implementation of the Clean Water Act, the nation’s landmark water pollution prevention law.
