About Us


Our mission is to strengthen the ability of citizens to protect water quality in rivers, tributary watersheds, oceans, bays, wetlands, surface and groundwater in Northern California.

River Watch protects local waterways through education, pollution prevention, enforcement, and preservation. River Watch prevents water pollution through cooperation with property owners, regulatory agencies and businesses by engaging all stakeholders in the process of negotiating a solution to stop and clean up the pollution of water. If cooperation and negotiations fail, River Watch brings suit to prevent any further harm to our precious water resources, freshwater species, public health and safety.

We refuse to idly stand by to let businesses and corporations discharge sewage, metals, phosphates, pesticides, herbicides, etc. (and the list goes on….) into our water, especially when there are local, State and Federal laws to prevent this pollution.
