Clean & Plentiful Water Program
Oregon’s rivers, lakes and groundwater will be healthy and pure. Oregonians will have safe sources of drinking water and be able to swim, boat and fish in our rivers and lakes – and eat what we catch – without risking our health. Our groundwater levels will be stable, and our rivers will flow with enough water to support growing communities, businesses, agriculture, native fish, and wildlife. Protected water resources will provide resiliency in the face of climate change.
Oregon Environmental Council takes a collaborative approach as we pursue good public policies and educate individuals, businesses, and local governments. We work to reduce urban and agricultural runoff, use water efficiently, and prevent pollution. Read below for more on how we are advancing this vision.
