River Network envisions a future of clean and ample water for people and nature, where local caretakers are well-equipped, effective, and courageous champions for our rivers.

Which states have passed laws regulating the pervasive PFAS that contaminate our drinking water? How are states advancing the removal of lead service lines and reducing the risks of lead exposure from the water coming out of our taps?

With support from the Water Foundation, we address these questions and more with the launch of our NEW State Policy Hub! Use it to search for state policy language across every drinking water-related state policy in the United States, supporting advocacy efforts in your state.
