Safeguarding Water Quality

West Virginia Rivers Coalition (WVRC) is the lead organization working with state agencies and policymakers to establish and maintain standards that keep West Virginia rivers clean, safe and healthy. 

It is a never-ending job that requires continuous vigilance and sound knowledge of public health issues. Our science-based Water Policy Workgroup and other efforts defend against industry attempts to weaken standards for dangerous toxins like aluminum, selenium and mercury.
