Current Advocacy Campaigns from Riverkeeper:
Demand special protections for heavily polluted waters
Our impaired waters--from Bronx River to Jamaica Bay--warrant special protection under the Clean Water Act. The City must identify green infrastructure opportunities and customize stormwater best management practices to protect them.
Protect New York's wetlands
The state legislature needs to hear from New Yorkers like you to know that you support protecting large wetlands from further destruction and pollution.
Tell DEC: Require NYC to #stopthemud in Lower Esopus Creek
New York City is dumping millions of gallons a day of turbid water from its Ashokan Reservoir into the Lower Esopus Creek. Urge the DEC to demand better ways to manage this water supply in the face of climate change and protect communities downstream.
There are many ways to get more involved with Riverkeeper and contribute to the protection of your local water resources.
