AIDA’s Fresh Water Program helps to keep waters clean and support ecosystem health.

AIDA’s attorneys work to:

  • Keep aquifers and surface waters free of pollutants from mines and hydraulic fracturing (fracking).
  • Improve watershed management to ensure sufficient clean water to support ecosystem health and river communities.
  • Build government and civil-society capacity to create and implement stronger legal protections for clean water.
