More than half of the streams across America are in “poor” condition, due in large part to pollution running off farms, lawns, and parking lots. Approximately one-third of these streams are too dirty to even be considered “fishable” or “swimmable” – meaning they can't support healthy populations of fish and other aquatic life and they are not safe for us to play in or on the water.
The problem may be worse than we know. Only 20 percent of U.S. waters are even monitored, and many of these are monitored only once every 5 years.
So, what can you do about it? A lot! You can make a big impact with a few simple steps. Let us show you how fun and easy it can be to help solve America's water quality problems.
