Gunpowder Riverkeeper tracks development, industrial, transportation, pipeline, and other projects seeking pollution permits to make sure these projects do not harm our local waterways, and do follow the proper regulatory processes, including adequate public commenting and participation. Gunpowder Riverkeeper will educate the public, provide public participation opportunities, and submit technical comments on permits. In some cases, Gunpowder Riverkeeper will challenge a permit in a legal action.
