Rogue Riverkeeper is a member of the Waterkeeper Alliance, which is an international network of advocates who fight for clean water in nearly 200 watersheds worldwide. The guiding principle of Waterkeepers is that without water, there can be no life, and without clean water, there can be no healthy life.
Water is at the core of today's most pressing issues—security and scarcity, energy and climate change, the cause and spread of infectious disease. Communities are looking for ways to protect our right to clean water, as the quality and quantity of water resources decline around the world.
In the United States one of the strongest tools used by Waterkeepers is the 1972 Clean Water Act. Rogue Riverkeeper works to use the Clean Water Act to improve water quality by working with partners and individuals to collect data and information related to the current status of water quality in our region and ways to improve it.
People are often most concerned about water quality as it affects them directly: what they ingest, where they live, where they recreate. If you would like to learn more about Rogue Riverkeepers data collection, see our Field Work page as well as the Waterkeepers Swim Guide for local water quality data.
