Clean Water is No Accident

It has taken over four decades to take the river from one of the nation’s most polluted rivers to one of its most improved.

As we enter our fifth decade as protector of the James, we find our challenges are different than those we faced in the past. Since we’ve seen improvements in the health of the river, the problems seem less obvious and appear less urgent to address. But the truth is, our challenges are even greater.

Together we can be agents of change for the James River – so the James River can improve and enhance our communities.

Be A James Changer!

The James River is recovering thanks to the collective power of corporate leaders, community partners, legislative decision-makers, and JRA members, donors, and volunteers. Through our corporate partners, who appreciate the vital relationship between water quality and quality of life, we won’t just save our river, we will keep it saved.
