Preserving Our Land & Water
The Catawba Riverkeeper is the only non-profit, on-the-water advocate for the entire 8,900 miles of waterways in the Catawba-Wateree River Basin. We provide accurate, science-based information about your water and the issues affecting it.
Our experienced network includes diverse community members, engaged volunteers, a representative board, and professional staff members whose dedication of time, talent and resources protect and enhance our river today and for future generations. We serve our communities through Protection and Experiences.
OUR RIVER flows through 26 counties in North and South Carolina and provides drinking water for more than 2 million residents and generates electricity for nearly 3 million residents. It has been aptly named “The Hardest Working River in America!”
