The Chesapeake Bay and its tributary rivers, broadly recognized as a national treasure, will be highly productive and in good health as measured by established water quality standards. The result will be clear water, free of impacts from toxic contaminants, and with healthy oxygen levels. Natural filters on both the land and in the water will provide resilience to the entire Chesapeake Bay system and serve as valuable habitat for both terrestrial and aquatic life.
The Arundel Rivers Federation uses science, restoration and community action to make the South, West and Rhode Rivers cleaner and healthier. We envision clean, fishable, swimmable waterways for our local communities.
We are devoted to protecting and restoring a very special place – the South, West and Rhode Rivers of Anne Arundel County. We use a science-driven, community-based approach to improve the water quality of our rivers – and we’re not afraid to get our boots muddy.
