Columbia Riverkeeper works to protect, restore, and care for the Columbia River.
How we do it.
We protect Columbia River communities and habitat from new threats, such as fossil fuel export terminals and intensive industrial development.
We restore our right to clean water and healthy fish by reducing toxic pollution.
We care for the river by providing hands-on opportunities for diverse communities to engage with their river.
We achieved an important victory for clean water today: The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality agreed to take important steps to reduce pollution from 800+ industrial facilities across Oregon.
Columbia Riverkeeper sues Department of Energy for withholding information about financial aid for a proposed petrochemical plant.
Read about competing visions for Hanford’s future—from the perspectives of tribal nations, the federal government, and the states of Oregon and Washington—will determine Hanford’s nuclear legacy.
We use legal advocacy and community organizing to stop pollution, fight fossil fuel terminals, save salmon, build stewardship, and clean up Hanford.
We monitor the water for bacteria at popular recreation sites along the Columbia. Download Swim Guide today for safety updates.
