Make a change

What you put down the drain ends up in the Willamette River.

Protecting the Willamette River is a daily exercise. At home, choose non-toxic household products that don’t carry harmful chemicals into our waters. Clean up after your pets to help keep fecal bacteria out of the river. Use less water to create better stream conditions and temperatures for sensitive species like salmon. The list below contains some helpful resources for making your home more Willamette-friendly.
