River Network Map: Who's Protecting Your Water?

  • Map: Who Protects Water?

    Approximately 250,000 rivers flow through America's landscape. More than 6,500 groups, indigenous communities, and government agencies work at local, state, and regional levels to protect and restore rivers and drinking water. This map also shows rivers protected by the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act—celebrating 50 years in 2018—including 12,000 miles of 200+ rivers designated in 40 states and Puerto Rico.
