Mission Statement

The Environmental Law Foundation is committed to improving environmental quality for those most at risk by providing access to information, strategies, and enforcement of environmental, toxics, and community right-to-know laws. ELF complements the approach of other environmental law groups by enforcing existing environmental regulations, providing a bridge of direct service to people in need, and serving as the critical link between at-risk communities and the legal, scientific, financial, and other resources they need to effectively address environmental problems.

Description

ELF is a 501(c)(3) founded on Earth Day in 1992 with a commitment to protect California's resources from environmental degradation and to protect its residents from toxic exposures. ELF works to protect water quality using laws such as Prop 65, Clean Water Act, Safe Drinking Water Act, Wild & Scenic Rivers Act, and the Public Trust Doctrine. ELF has a Trust Fund established to "protect water quality" throughout California. ELF is using those funds to investigate threats to water quality from extractive industries, from toxins in public drinking water supplies, and contaminants in other drinking water sold to the public.
