Rivers are our lifelines. They supply half of our drinking water, provide opportunities for recreation, fuel our economy, sustain natural systems, and enrich the quality of our lives. More than three million miles of rivers crisscross our nation and nearly every American lives within one mile of a river or stream.

River cleanups are important because we rely on rivers for everything from clean drinking water to recreation. They not only bring communities together but help people connect with these precious resources and ensure a legacy of healthy rivers for generations to come.
