Crag works with local residents, community organizations, and conservation groups to hold industry and local governments accountable for polluting our air, land, and water.  When industrial facilities violate permit requirements under the Clean Water Act or Clean Air Act, risking the health of local communities by degrading water and air quality, Crag seeks to enforce permit requirements in court.  Additionally, Crag advises clients on state-wide efforts to reform pollution prevention and control regulations.  By working to reform state legislation and enforce current laws and regulations, Crag strives to protect human and environmental health of current and future generations.
