Today, water resources are declining in quality and quantity in
virtually every part of the world: More than a billion people are
living without access to safe drinking water; California faces the
most serious water emergency in its history; Australia is in the midst
of an epic, 12-year-long drought-the first industrialized nation to
deal with water scarcity on this scale.
Waterkeeper Alliance provides a way for communities to stand up for
their right to clean water and for the wise and equitable use of water
resources, both locally and globally. The vision of the
Waterkeeper movement is for fishable, swimmable and drinkable
waterways worldwide. Our belief is that the best way to achieve
this vision is through the Waterkeeper method of grassroots advocacy.
Waterkeeper Alliance aspires to protect every major watershed
around the world. We also continue to reach out and collaborate with
other leading national and international environmental and public
health organizations to serve the needs of our global network.
The growth of the Waterkeeper movement is a testament to the
strength of our model.

Ganges, Waterkeeper Alliance has become a powerful voice for the
