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.
To mark the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act (CWA) on October 18, 2022, we’re reissuing our transformational Clean Water Act Owner’s Manual! Our policy team and the Manual’s advisory group are hard at work updating the Manual to reflect the last almost 20 years of changes in the federal water policy landscape and bringing the topics of climate change and environmental justice front and center. Stay tuned for updates in the coming months!
US communities are more and more frequently impacted by climate change and increasingly face problems like property damage and health and safety issues as a result of flooding and extreme heat. Community-based organizations in our network have repeatedly emphasized that to equitably and successfully carry out climate resilience solutions, it’s imperative to directly engage with community members. In our latest story map, meet four community projects in detail.
River Network’s searchable water protectors map helps communities and local water supporters connect. Search it, link to it, share it, and embed it on any website! (If your water organization is not already on the map, sign up for a free River Network membership to be included.)
