Responding to climate heating

American Rivers first hired Caplan Communications in 2006 to launch their annual “Most Endangered Rivers” report. We have worked with the influential nonprofit to release their report every year since then.

This year, American Rivers asserted the Ohio River should have federal protections similar to the Great Lakes and the Chesapeake Bay, according their new report. To protect the health and wellbeing of Ohio River Basin, which is the primary drinking water source of over 5 million people, Congress must follow the Ohio River Basin Alliance’s lead and add the Ohio River to the list of our nation’s great water systems that receive significant, sustained federal funding each year.
