Advocating for a Clean Energy Future in the Lumber River Basin

Winyah Rivers Foundation (Waccamaw RIVERKEEPER®) has been working to prevent and cleanup pollution from fossil-fueled energy sources like coal and natural gas throughout our watershed. As a licensed member of WATERKEEPER® Alliance, we are proponents of its Clean and Safe Energy Campaign, focusing on shifting away from our reliance on dirty fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas, towards more environmentally sustainable resources.

Canines for Clean Water Contest Is Open

As an Education Provider for the Coastal Waccamaw Stormwater Education Consortium (CWSEC), the Riverkeeper would like to share news that the CWSEC's 1st annual Canines for Clean Water contest has begun! The goal of this spokesdog contest, coordinated by Coastal Carolina University students, is to find a “poo-llution solution” and increase awareness about water quality and the importance of cleaning up after pets. The winning dog will become the face of CWSEC's 2016 pet waste outreach efforts.

Keep it clean

Your Riverkeeper is working diligently to keep it clean...our rivers, that is. Whether you swim in it, fish in it, or drink from it, we like our water clean!
