About Us

Kent County Water Conservation is a non-profit organization concentrated on protecting our water resources and natural habitats within Kent County and the Great Lakes basin. We proudly work with citizens, local, state, and national agencies and organizations to ensure the protection and vitality of our natural resources. 

KCWC utilized digital media as a tool for storytelling to inform the public and get the community involved in the issues that they are passionate about. Check out our videos to see what we are passionate about!

Michigan is surrounded by the largest freshwater system on earth. We believe this gives us even more of a responsibility to protect our freshwater resources. KCWC works to protect our resources from future threats, retain the natural beauty and restore damaged water habitats. We are excited to play an integral role in the continued growth and sustainability of Kent County and the surrounding communities. 

Our organizational efforts focus on preventing irreversible impacts on our freshwater resources. We believe oil should not move through or on the Great Lakes. We also concentrate on preventing permanent water loss, water contamination, toxic air pollution, release of radioactive materials, the onset of unnatural earthquakes, and economic damages of the industrialization process associated with high-volume hydraulic fracturing.
