Neuse River Foundation, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars   1 review

Issues: Environment, Water

Location: PO Box 15451 New Bern NC 28561 USA

Mission: The Neuse Riverkeeper Foundation protects, restores and preserves the Neuse River basin through education, advocacy and enforcement, in order to provide clean water for drinking, recreation and enjoyment to the communities that it serves.  
Programs: The Muddy Water Watch project is a state-wide initiative to reduce stormwater runoff from construction sites by providing training workshops and materials developed specifically for citizens on the North Carolina sediment and stormwater laws and requirements associated with construction activity. Polluted stormwater runoff, including sediment from poorly maintained construction sites, is the number one reason for poor water quality in North Carolina. MWW volunteers are able to properly identify sedimentation and erosion violations from active construction sites, as well as poorly maintained Best Management Practices. These volunteers help increase the frequency of routine BMP maintenance and, most importantly, are proactive in keeping mud and sediment out of NC rivers and streams by working with local inspectors and developers to oversee enforcement of sediment laws on NC construction sites.

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteer for a number of organizations and festivals, and the Neuse River Foundation is consistently well organized and mission-oriented in their volunteer opportunities. I also enjoy volunteering for the NRF because I value their mission, to protect clean water sources. I enjoy recreational activities on the various water sources in the basin, and I also obtain my drinking water (via the City) from it. According to the USGS less than 1% of the water on Earth is usable by humans. As a human, I treasure that 1%, and the NRF is fighting to protect it and keep it usable.
