Is Your Favorite River Endangered This Year?


Ozark National Scenic RiverwayGuess what rivers are the most endangered this year?  If you live in this state alphabet soup, you might see a nearby river in the news on May 15:

CO, DC, GA, IA, KS, MD, MO, MT, ND, NE, OH, PA, SD, UT, VA, WA, WV, and WY

Are you wondering what issues we will be talking about?  As you may know, this year marks the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act

Consequently, we will be talking a lot about clean water in our 2012 list of America’s Most Endangered Rivers®. Threats to supplies of clean, fresh, drinkable water abound across the nation and indeed the world.  Decision-makers from Congress to local municipalities are making critical choices regarding the protection and funding of resources and infrastructure for the maintenance of clean water. 

Now is the time for you to get involved in protecting your water supply, and let public officials know that clean water is SO IMPORTANT!

So, get ready to shout it out-

I WON’T TOLERATE ATTACKS ON MY FAMILY’S WATER!

And prepare to show it with actions.  After all, America’s Most Endangered Rivers® is about:

  • Taking action on behalf of rivers. 
  • Standing up for rivers so that they have a voice. 
  • And protecting water for future generations. 
  • Because everyone deserves clean water.
