Introducing the Clean Water Coalition of Indian River County, Inc. (CWC)
The CWC is an independent, unifying voice to protect and restore the surface and ground waters of Indian River County; connecting and coordinating with community partners to maximize effort toward this shared vision. We envision complete restoration of healthy surface waters and an ecosystem teeming with diverse fish and wildlife: a place where we can take our families to swim, fish, and recreate without fear. We envision a plentiful supply of clean and safe drinking water for current and future generations.
- Restore the Indian River Lagoon – A good Investment
- Improved Wastewater Treatment
- Safe Bio-Solid disposal
- No-Discharge Zone for Boats
- Clean and sufficient supply of potable water for current and future generations.
