NLC News: NLC Joins Waterkeeper Alliance

The Nantucket Land & Water Council is thrilled to officially join the Waterkeeper Alliance and administer Nantucket’s first ever Waterkeeper program. The Waterkeeper Alliance is an international organization spanning six continents and over 350 nonprofit member organizations. Every single member has the same stalwart goal- swimmable, fishable, drinkable waters for all.
NLC has been protecting Nantucket’s storied waterways and sole source aquifer for almost half a century, and we are looking to continue this critical work as part of the fastest growing clean water movement in the world. By joining, Land Council staff now have access to hundreds of scientists, attorneys, and community leaders who are fighting the same clean water battles from the Louisiana bayou to the dizzying heights of the Himalayas.
As your official “eyes and ears” for Nantucket’s water resources, we continue to use the best research available to preserve our fragile ecosystems and preserve them not only for present but future Nantucket residents.
