Suction DredgingSuction Dredging in Oregon
Suction dredge gold mining is literally sucking up our steams and rivers and spitting them back out. This rapidly increasing harmful practice needs to be reigned in to protect our aquatic resources and clean water.
Erosion Illinois_web.jpgLogging roads and the Clean Water Act
The Clean Water Act is a powerful tool we can use to address a chronic source of sediment to our streams.  The timber industry is fighting to exempt their pollution from the Clean Water Act and we must ensure that the laws are applied the same as any other source.
Hot Topic LNG 158Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) Exports
Out-of-state energy companies have been pursuing LNG exports for the Jordan Cove Pacific Connector project for over a decade. A large and diverse coalition is opposed to this project for a variety of reasons including threats to our waterways, public lands, gas rates, safety, private property, communities, and climate.  
Hot Topic Riverwatch 158Riverwatch Volunteering
Volunteer with Rogue Riverkeeper to keep watch in the Rogue Basin. The Clean Water Act in and of itself does not ensure clean water. Rather, it depends on informed and involved communities to organize, speak up and take action for clean water.
Hot Topic Mining 158Mining
Learn about suction dredging, mining on public lands and toxic, abandoned mines in the Rogue Basin. Read about California's moratorium on suction dredging and what that means for Oregon, and how the 1872 Mining Law makes fish habitat, water quality and taxpayers pay the price for public lands mining.
Hot Topic Wild Rogue 158Protecting the Wild Rogue
Join the movement to protect the wildlands and tributary streams of our region. In January 2016, Oregon Governor Kate Brown approved portions of the Chetco River to be designated under the State Scenic Waterways program, one of the first new waterways to be protected under this Act since 1988.
