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!
You can now find environmental justice policies and regulations and policies that supplement Clean Water Act (CWA) coverage and protection in the State Policy Hub, along with deep dives highlighting policy language and providing context for how organizations across the network strategize and advocate for policy change and ensure implementation is a success. The database itself is also more user-friendly and searchable now!
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.)
