Program areas at American Rivers

River restoration:the river restoration program brings rivers back to life by removing dams, replacing culverts, and restoring floodplains through practice, policy, and strategic capacity building. American rivers acknowledges that we only need to give rivers a boost and their natural resiliency will allow them to recover and thrive. Our restoration work capitalizes on nature's strengths and those of our staff and partners to make a difference for rivers throughout the u.s.our national and state policy efforts are increasingly improving the regulatory landscape to allow for more efficient, high quality river restoration work in the future. In addition, outreach to federal agencies has resulted in new partnerships that will lead to strategic high priority restoration initiatives on federal lands across the country.

Clean water supply:water. What could be more important to our health, our communities, and our lives? By focusing our efforts on stopping pollution from sewage spills and stormwater runoff, american rivers is working to ensure that our rivers and streams are safe for drinking, fishing, swimming and boating.

Federal river management:our federal river management work focuses on the reform of hydropower operation in the country. While hydropower helps us supply much needed fossil-free energy, it is not without impacts. Hydropower dams block rivers and can leave several miles of river sections dry.

Through our hydropower reform program, we seek to modernize the operations of hydropower dams to improve their environmental performance using existing regulatory processes. We also seek to improve policies that dictate hydropower licensing and promote responsible hydropower development.
