ACWA,(formerly the Campaign to Safeguard America’s Waters (CSAW)), works to prevent the degradation of public waters through advocacy, education, litigation, legislation and market campaigns in support of the fundamental goals of the federal Clean Water Act: (1) all Alaska waters should protect aquatic life and be safe for recreation, (2) the discharge of all pollutants into public waters should be eliminated.
Resource extraction and climate change are impacting the far north more dramatically than anywhere else on the planet. Our waters, and the people and wildlife that depend upon them every day, have never needed more support.
