Community-driven water solutions through organizing, education, and advocacy

Groundwater Protection & Management

CWC advocates for policies and practices at the state and regional level that prevent fertilizers, manure, and pesticides from contaminating the drinking water supplies of San Joaquin Valley communities. The Center is a strong voice for effective and enforceable regulatory programs that will inform the relationship between best practices and groundwater quality, allow regulators to distinguish between good and bad actors in the agriculture industry, and provide funding mechanisms to help pay for remediation of drinking water contamination in low-income rural communities. CWC conducts much of its groundwater protection work primarily through a collaborative project with the Clean Water Fund and Leadership Counsel for Justice and Accountability.
