About: 

People often ask why we do this work. It's simple, really. We believe in a healthy environment because it enhances our quality of life, our public health, our local economy and protects our property values. Our waters and wildlife belong to all of us and they're meant for our use and enjoyment, even while they contribute millions of dollars to our economy and form the basis of our local heritage. We believe that clean, healthy water contributes to a strong, successful community and that our waters are worthy of our protection.
