Having grown up in Hong Kong, water, both in terms of quantity and quality, is a huge issue to me. Getting water-borne diseases and having my mother issued boil-water orders every morning are some of the reasons why I have devoted the rest of my career to working on drinking water, source protection, water quality, and resource management.
The big challenge in New England in the future has to do with the management and control of diffused pollution sources – such as septic systems, stormwater, certain farming practices, and climate change. CLF is uniquely positioned to address these and other environmental and conservation issues in New England. Using law as an instrument to protect the environment and public health of New England, on the basis of sound science, sets CLF apart from other environmental organizations in the region.
