We need to Power Responsibly.
- Applying sensible safeguards that address the harm caused by hydropower;
- Enforcing strong dam safety rules; and
- Ensuring that states, tribes, and the public have a robust and vital role in the hydropower licensing process.
You can help by reaching out to your senators and asking them to only support hydropower policies that are consistent with the principles above.
Support efforts in your state:
American Rivers: The hydropower industry is pushing a flurry of legislation that could result in many more dried up rivers, dead fish and wildlife, and destroyed recreational opportunities.
American Whitewater: As the Hydropower Policy Modernization Act moves to the Senate, it’s important that your Senators hear from you.
California Trout: Bill H.R. 8 creates a giant loophole that allows hydropower dam operators to avoid requirements to protect fish, wildlife and water quality.
Friends of the River: Help us stop a breathtaking assault on our nation’s rivers and the people who depend on them!
