Our Mission

We are an ad hoc committee of local residents concerned with the environmental health of the York River and the surrounding area. Our immediate interest is in documenting and addressing the condition of the multiple coal-ash disposal sites in York County. Longer term, we hope to participate in planning for the repurposing of refinery and power station properties in the County, with an ultimate goal of establishing a Riverkeeper for the York River basin.

A Riverkeeper’s mission is to act to achieve swimmable, fishable, and drinkable waterways.
