River in Bolivian Amazon

Many rivers around the world are under serious threat from megadams, goldmining, grazing, and other pollution. In the United States, 51% of water in rivers and streams is too polluted for swimming, fishing or drinking according to the non-profit Environmental Integrity Project. An increasing number of organizations are recognizing that megadams are not clean energy and should not be considered in climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts. Safeguarding rivers helps protect sources of clean drinking water, preserves cultures and traditions, conserves reservoirs of wildlife and biodiversity, bolsters recreational economy, helps limit and control flooding, transfers nutrients, helps fight climate change, and preserves a sustainable source of food.
