Waterkeeper Alliance

Our Mission

Waterkeeper Alliance connects and supports local Waterkeeper programs to provide a voice for waterways and their communities worldwide. To champion clean water and strong communities, Waterkeeper Alliance:

1. Supports and empowers member Waterkeeper organizations to protect communities, ecosystems and water quality;
2. Promotes the Waterkeeper model for watershed protection worldwide; and
3. Advocates for issues common to Waterkeeper programs.

Each Waterkeeper program reflects the needs of the waterbody and community it represents. The common thread for each Waterkeeper program is a full-time person who serves as the Waterkeeper, the public advocate for that body of water.

Waterkeepers are part investigator, scientist, lawyer, and advocate. Think of a Waterkeeper' s "clients" as all the users of the watershed for which the Waterkeeper advocates. A successful advocate has a diverse bag of tools that allows her or him as the Waterkeeper to get the job done. All Waterkeepers also have a boat ranging in size from canoes to research vessels, but sometimes a pair of hip boots is more important than a boat. Sometimes a legal brief is more important than either. Each waterbody has its own unique challenges requiring a distinct and well-defined strategy.

All Waterkeeper programs must be formal organizations. Whether you intend to structure your Waterkeeper program under the umbrella of an existing organization or start your own organization, there must be a non-profit 501(c)(3) or (4) entity sponsoring the Waterkeeper program.

Lastly, membership and active participation in the Alliance are requirements of becoming, and remaining, a Waterkeeper program.

Getting the Big Picture -- Carbon Dioxide Ruled a Danger

Last Friday the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a finding that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases represent a significant threat to public health and welfare. EPA now has both the authority and the obligation to regulate global warming pollution, with concrete action on motor vehicle emissions expected soon.

This "endangerment finding" is based on tens of thousands of public comments and years of work by EPA's career staff and scientists. It also ends more than two years of uncertainty following the Supreme Court's landmark Massachusetts v. EPA decision and brings to a close the Bush Administration era of climate denial.

To demonstrate support for the Obama administration's ambitious plans for rulemaking, the Sierra Club will be mobilizing its activists through a new campaign entitled "The Big Picture: Help Obama Build Our Clean Energy Future."

President Obama sees the Big Picture -- by shifting to clean energy, and cracking down on the corporations that pollute the water we drink and the air we breathe, we can restore our economy to prosperity and reduce our dependence on oil and coal, all while tackling global warming.

Be part of the Big Picture!

Ughh, take out is one of my major sins! I get food to go all the time. However, I do recycle the containers or bags if I am able. Though I have been using my own plate and utensils at work for well over a year now, though, instead of disposable.

@Sydni: I watched it as well. It's not just kids but the public in general that is unaware. Like they said, so much of it is miniscule because it is a little pollution from a gazillion sources, so it seems invisible. It was informative, but as always, very discouraging that no one seems to care all that much, especially politicians. The worst part was the chicken industry section with all that manure. They were totally screwing those farmers, and the taxpayers.

They're probably stealing them. This is a little OT, but I don't think the states want to squash out smoking, to be honest. In spite of the healthcare costs associated with it, it also generates a lot of tax revenues, which are of course badly needed. Financially, it benefits the government for people to continue to smoke.

@Sydni: Yeah, people will always take the cheaper route, no matter what. So if you want to stop something, charge for it. But on the other hand, I don't think all the taxes on cigarettes has stoped smoking.

FRONTLINE Presents
POISONED WATERS
Tuesday, April 21, 2009, from 9 to 11 P.M. ET on PBS

www.pbs.org/frontline/poisonedwaters

More than three decades after the Clean Water Act, iconic American waterways like the Chesapeake Bay and Puget Sound are in perilous condition and facing new sources of contamination.

With polluted runoff still flowing in from industry, agriculture and massive suburban development, scientists note that many new pollutants and toxins from modern everyday life are already being found in the drinking water of millions of people across the country and pose a threat to fish, wildlife and, potentially, human health.

In FRONTLINE’s Poisoned Waters, airing Tuesday, April 21, 2009, from 9 to 11 P.M. ET on PBS (check local listings), Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Hedrick Smith examines the growing hazards to human health and the ecosystem. Read more.
