CleanWaterFest was created in 2012 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, a fundamental part of improving the quality and health of creeks, rivers, and coastal waters by stopping billions of pounds of contamination from polluters. The Clean Water Act will be celebrating its 41st birthday on October 18th. Clean water and a growing craft beer industry are essential for the health of Orange County’s tourism-based economy.
