For the past decade, Rogue Riverkeeper has been working to protect, defend, and restore clean water and fish in the Rogue Basin. Join us in 2019 to celebrate 10 years of advocacy, accountability, and community engagement. Thank you for your support!
Along with our many other current priorities at Rogue Riverkeeper, our focus on Bear Creek involves community engagement, water quality monitoring, and building partnerships across the many entities interested in protecting and restoring this waterway. So, what’s new?
On May 6th, the state of Oregon said a resounding “NO” to the Jordan Cove LNG project when the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) denied a critical Clean Water Act permit needed for the project to move forward. Despite the Trump administration’s efforts to weaken the Clean Water Act, this decision shows that the state of Oregon is taking a stand for our communities and our clean water.
We test for pollution weekly at popular swimming, boating and fishing spots.
