We are pleased to welcome American Rivers to the Source Water Collaborative. American Rivers has a long history of work related to our mission of creative collaboration to protect drinking water sources. American Rivers protects wild rivers, restores damaged rivers, and conserves clean water for people and nature. Since 1973, American Rivers has protected and restored more than 150,000 miles of rivers through advocacy efforts, on-the-ground projects, and an annual America’s Most Endangered Rivers® campaign. Headquartered in Washington, DC, American Rivers has offices across the country and more than 250,000 members, supporters, and volunteers.
American Rivers works with partners including water utilities, private landowners, and government to protect source waters in a variety of ways. Key efforts include creating funding mechanisms, securing local codes and ordinances, establishing conservation easements, improving federal forest management and designating Wild and Scenic rivers.
We look forward to working with American Rivers in the years ahead.
