Clean Water Action is fighting for our environment, economy and health - and you can add your voice to this struggle. Your legislator has the power to green our economy, support the growth of clean energy, protect consumers and phase-out harmful chemical from workplaces and consumer products.
The 2014 groundwater legislation that Clean Water Action helped pass was a big victory for California! But there’s still work to be done to ensure that California has a sustainable supply of groundwater to support our future water needs.
One major gap is the lack of information about groundwater aquifers. Take action to make information for our groundwater available to the public.
You'll never believe what the oil industry is doing with their toxic
wastewater! Across the Central Valley, already the home of California's
most severe water shortages, polluted groundwater, and the worst air
quality in the country, Big Oil is dumping its wastewater into open and
unlined pits. Full of harmful chemicals, like cancer-causing benzene
and crop-killing boron, this wastewater leaches toxic chemicals into
the ground and evaporates volatile organic chemicals into the air.
Crazy right?! Take Action Today!
Liberty Natural Gas (Liberty LNG) is once again trying to place a hazardous LNG port (called "Port Ambrose") off the NY/NJ coast (the project was vetoed in 2011 by Gov. Christie) -- just 28 miles from Sandy Hook and 18 miles off Jones Beach, NY.
Liberty LNG is proposing to create a deepwater port that would bring combustible liquefied natural gas (LNG) tankers to the NY/NJ region. Under the Deepwater Port Act, this LNG facility could be used for both import and export.
