Despite some progress, the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers still suffer greatly from major pollution insults.
Our unique approach to this problem is to directly engage individuals, corporations, and government bodies who are responsible for pollution.
- We identify specific polluters through several proven strategies.
- We seek cooperation from polluters in cleaning up.
- If polluters refuse to clean up voluntarily, we use our network of attorneys and the Clean Water Act to force them to do so.
Through our attorneys, we also forcefully assert the interests of clean water in critical county and state regulatory processes such as stormwater and agricultural runoff. We are the only non-profit group consistently willing to use hard-hitting legal remedies to stop pollution throughout the watershed. PRKN does the heavy lifting in the battles against pollution!
