Advocacy Statement

Investing in the Santa Fe River and Watershed has a track record of creating a healthy river system and directly brings benefit to our community. Boosting measures to sustain a living river is highly desirable. A flowing, meandering, tree-lined stream is a greenway which all of us can enjoy. A living river recharges the underground aquifer which becomes our primary source of water during droughts. There are also benefits for plants and wildlife, which in turn enriches our quality of life and creates a better future.

Let’s make our voices heard together. Please send a message to your local lawmakers urging them to increase the amount of water released to the Santa Fe River as part of the Living River Ordinance.
