As the source of drinking water for over 40 million people and 95% of the US fresh surface water supply, the Great Lakes are a critical resource to North America. Our goal with this campaign is to position and communicate the value of the Great Lakes and their surrounding watersheds and tributary rivers as essential “living infrastructure” that protects our drinking water supply and to integrate this framing into a highly coordinated approach to protecting these source waters.
Waterkeeper Alliance and four local Waterkeeper Organizations in the Great Lakes region are seeking support for a new, highly strategic advocacy, policy, and communications campaign to commence in 2019 - focused on source water protection and maintaining the excellent water quality of our shared drinking water supply in the Great Lakes.

Save The River’s mission is to restore, preserve, and protect the ecological integrity of the Upper St. Lawrence River through advocacy, education, and research. Funding for this campaign will help Waterkeeper Alliance strengthen its campaign of advocacy for the clean waters of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River.
We are excited to be a part of this project as the Great Lakes provide drinking water for millions of people, including those in Traverse City. This campaign will help us protect drinking water in our communities from emerging threats through increased monitoring, education, and advocacy.
The Great Lakes are critical “living infrastructure” that provide drinking water for over 40 million Americans and Canadians, and contain 95% of the US fresh surface water supply. Waterkeepers around the Great Lakes work to protect our source waters through a coordinated strategy that includes advocacy, policy, on-the-ground projects, and communications work to educate the public about what they can do to protect our Great Lakes. Our overall goal is to work locally to ensure that we have clean water and healthy communities, while also working together as a region to maintain the excellent water quality of our shared drinking water supply in the Great Lakes.
