Virginians have the right to know whether or not streams are safe for swimming, fishing, playing, and drinking. Also, having site-specific and timely water quality information allows us identify pollution problems, determine how to restore streams, and assess success of restoration efforts. Our more than 600 volunteers collect information at approximately 400 stream sites. We work with everyone from individuals to agencies to ensure that future generations inherit improved and protected streams, rivers, and estuaries across Virginia.
Virginia Save Our Streams is a program of the Izaak Walton League of America. Founded in 1922, the Izaak Walton League is one of the nation's oldest and most respected conservation organizations.
