Clean water

If we want a greener, healthier world we need to protect our rivers, lakes and streams.

Clean water is vital to ecosystems, to our health, and our quality of life. But too many of our rivers, lakes and streams are vulnerable to pollution. This pollution, along with outdated infrastructure – like lead pipes in our schools – puts our health at risk. We need to work together to protect our waters.
