Advocating state and federal policy and funding for safe water
State policy. West Virginia Rivers brings voices to the concerns of residents and businesses to deliberations on state laws and regulations, and mobilizes the public to be heard in Charleston. We provide in-depth policy analysis through our Water Policy Workgroup, work in the statehouse to affect laws and regulations impacting water, and protect every West Virginian’s right to clean, safe water.
Federal policy. We advocate national policies and funding on Capitol Hill that protect water and our nation’s system of public lands.
Local activism. From pipelines to source water protection, from technical assistance to watershed groups to sparking youth engagement in water, WV Rivers fosters stronger communities of shared prosperity through science and advocacy.
