Pure Farms, Pure Waters
Factory farms cram thousands of animals into warehouse style buildings, creating one of the greatest sources of water pollution in the country, endangering public health and putting family farmers out of business. The cornerstone of our work is a litigation strategy intended to force compliance with the intent and letter of the Clean Water Act and other environmental laws. Our legal approach is complemented by strong educational efforts and grassroots mobilization.
Watch Waterkeeper Alliance President Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. speak at the 2009 Pure Farms, Pure Waters National CAFO Summit.
The Bush Administration passed a rule allowing factory farms to hide information about toxic pollutants. Ask the EPA to withdraw that rule and allow communities to protect themselves.
