Learn about your Watershed

Knowing where your water comes from and where it goes is an important step to getting involved with protecting and revitalizing your local watershed. In many cases you’ll find out that your water is not very local at all! Part of the goal of Rivers for Change is to understand the interconnectedness of our waterways and our interdependence on one another for its sustainability. What’s upstream of your water source, and what’s downstream?

California has one of the most extensive water projects. In fact, we use 20%of our total energy just to transport and treat water.
