Waterkeeper Alliance’s U.S. Blueprint for Clean Water

Waterkeeper Alliance’s U.S. Blueprint for Clean Water offers a new agenda for strengthening U.S. environmental protection to restore America’s ailing rivers, lakes, streams, wetlands and coastal waters. Unique in both its scope and depth, the Blueprint is the work of more than a hundred clean water activists, many of whom not only advocate for water but work on the water in communities across America and around the world.

The first Riverkeeper patrol boat was launched by military veterans and fishermen who mobilized in 1966 to challenge polluters on the Hudson River. That Riverkeeper’s contribution to the Hudson’s amazing recovery has inspired the growth of over 180 autonomous “Waterkeeper”organizations across the world. Waterkeepers (including Alabama’s Black Warrior Riverkeeper, Cahaba Riverkeeper, Choctawhatchee Riverkeeper, Hurricane Creekkeeper & Mobile Baykeeper) patrol waterways, respond to citizen complaints, and enforce environmental laws.

Waterkeeper Alliance was founded in 1999 to connect and support local Waterkeeper organizations, each of which is an independent organization protecting its waterway and community. Waterkeeper Alliance offers legal, scientific, and capacity-building advice, provides networking opportunities, and often advocates for issues common to multiple local Waterkeepers (such as mercury pollution, a major issue in the Black Warrior River watershed).
