Current Advocacy Campaigns from Riverkeeper:
Demand special protections for heavily polluted waters
Our impaired waters--from Bronx River to Jamaica Bay--warrant special protection under the Clean Water Act. The City must identify green infrastructure opportunities and customize stormwater best management practices to protect them.
Hazardous Waste Loophole
We need your help to end the loophole that allows the oil and gas industry to avoid hazardous waste requirements.
New York State: Pass Climate Legislation Before June 19!
There are several legislative proposals on the table that can help New York show the nation how to effectively fight climate change. Urge Governor Cuomo and your state representatives to pass a bold climate bill before June 19.
Tell FAA we need a substantial review of the LaGuardia AirTrain
Tell the FAA, the agency overseeing the LaGuardia Airport AirTrain's environmental review process, to investigate the potential for a more direct route to LGA that adds public transit, is climate resilient, and does not put added pressure on the 7 train.
There are many ways to get more involved with Riverkeeper and contribute to the protection of your local water resources.
