Mission Statement

Riverkeeper's mission is to protect the Hudson River and the drinking water supply for 9 million New York City and Hudson Valley residents.

Description

Riverkeeper's mission is to protect the environmental, recreational and commercial integrity of the Hudson River and its tributaries, and to safeguard the water supply for 9 million people in New York City and he Hudson Valley.

Major ongoing campaigns include Close Indian Point, Crude Oil Transport Risks and Hudson River Water Quality.

Since our founding in 1966, our organization has championed the rights of citizens to stop pollution, and reclaim waterways for swimming, fishing and other public uses. We have brought hundreds of polluters to justice and helped found the Keeper movement that now boasts over 200 organizations worldwide devoted to protecting local waterways.

Investigations and cases often start with a simple phone call or e-mail from a citizen watchdog, or someone hailing our patrol boat out on the river with a tip. On the river, Capt. John Lipscomb patrols the 150-mile Hudson River Estuary from New York City to Waterford monthly, to investigate and stop pollution.

We serve a diverse population, from urban dwellers residing in New York City to local fishermen and working class families who live and work in the rural Hudson Valley.
