Challenge

It is legal to drain a river dry in Oregon. This harms fish, wildlife, the public interest in waterways and anyone who uses or recreates on rivers. WaterWatch works to protect and restore streamflows in Oregon's rivers for fish, wildlife, and the people who depend on healthy rivers. Healthy rivers benefit fish and wildlife and local economies across Oregon.

Solution

WaterWatch advocates on behalf of streamflows and healthy rivers where ever decisions are made about Oregon's waters - before agencies, in the courts, and in the legislature. This "in the trenches" advocacy protects and restores streamflows across Oregon.

Long-Term Impact

Healthy rivers and sound water policies are critical to Oregon's quality of life and economy. Healthy rivers are essential to salmon, steelhead, other fish and wildlife, recreation, and local economies. WaterWatch is working to leave a legacy of healthy rivers in Oregon for future generations.
