AKICILJ: Is the "Clean Water Action" organization worth contributing to?

I just got a door-to-door canvasser who was asking people to sign up for Clean Water Action. From his pitch, it sounds like a good political lobby group, and reasonably sane (though there is the use of "chemicals" to mean "nasty stuff" rather indiscriminately in some of their materials).

Anyhow, I said that I preferred to check out organizations via independent sources before signing up for them, so: Do any of you have any experience with this organization, or know if they're a reasonable group that does good work? If they are, I'd like to support them, but I'm wary of all the groups that have good intentions but poor implementation, not to mention the groups that don't even have good intentions.
