There are many reasons to support Potomac Riverkeeper, but perhaps the most important reason is you care about clean water. Make a gift today! Your investment stays in the community and is put to work protecting and restoring local rivers and streams. Your gift will support the following programs in 2013:
1. Clean Water Enforcement Program: Throughout the watershed we are taking action to enforce the rules and regulations of the Clean Water Act. In 2013, we intend to focus our efforts on our current legal battles by stopping a proposed toxic mixing zone in Frederick County, fighting to prevent a paper mill from illegally polluting on the North Branch, and working to mitigate ongoing sewage discharges from a mobile home park due to failing septic systems. Support these legal battles!
2. Green Farms, Clean Water Initiative: Out in the Shenandoah Valley we will continue to survey and monitor farms and issue Agricultural Stewardship Act complaints when needed. We are also committing ourselves to the goal of getting every herd of cattle out of the North Fork, South Fork and Main Stem of the Shenandoah by 2015! Help clean up the Shenandoah!
3. Riverwatcher Program: This spring, we are kicking off a new and improved citizen training program aimed at educating local communities on how to identify and report pollution. Coupled with the creation of a unique Riverwatcher mobile app, communities will have more power than ever to directly impact the condition of their local rivers and streams.
