This year is the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act and Waterkeepers around the nation are working to achieve the central tenets of this important law: swimmable, drinkable, fishable waters for all. Unfortunately, our streams and rivers remain threatened by a variety of pollutants, many of our fisheries are near extinction and some members of the U.S Congress, pressured by polluting industries, are working hard to erode the protections of this important law.
Wild salmon are a cultural and economic pillar in the Pacific Northwest and they are threatened with extinction. Industrial logging roads are a leading cause of sediment pollution, threatening water quality and native fish populations. Rogue Riverkeeper believes it is time for the logging industry to do its fair share to protect water quality. We oppose efforts underway to exempt the timber industry and logging roads from the Clean Water Act and we are asking for your help. For clean water and wild salmon, act now. www.rogueriverkeeper.org
