CWFNC believes it is not only possible but necessary to work for solutions to pollution problems that create jobs, help finance significant pollution reductions and conserve both water and energy while holding specific polluters accountable for their emissions and discharges through regulatory and direct activism. We spearhead public education and advocacy to build awareness of NC’s special vulnerabilities to hydraulic fracturing and potential impacts to our water, land, air and communities.
Goals (will be updated soon):
- Partner with specific downstream or downwind groups and coalitions to work for stronger permits and enforcement, including filing legal challenges where there is an opportunity to set a strong precedent.
- Reduce NC’s vulnerability to massive impact of electricity production on NC waters, while reducing cost of energy bills, especially for low income residents, and creating good, locally based jobs through energy efficiency and sound water allocation policies.
