Water Quality Enforcement

Our enforcement program defends public health standards and makes sure Orange County’s water is swimmable, drinkable and fishable for everyone. After our teams go out into the field to identify water quality violations, we use one of the most effective and efficient tools we have – litigation.

Environmental Law Clinic

Coastkeeper hosts a competitive legal internship program in the hope of training the next generation of environmental attorneys by providing “real-world” experience in the field of environmental advocacy.

Through this semester-long internship, law students learn the intricacies of environmental law and how local, state, and federal regulations impact the environment and the people who rely on and enjoy our beautiful inland and coastal areas.
