The mission of the Severn Riverkeeper Program is to protect and restore the Severn River for our families and future generations. Our goal is to reduce pollution, muddy runoff, contamination, and loss of habitat so that the Severn is removed from EPA’s “impaired waterways” list and is once again safe and swimmable.

Our staff and volunteers

  • Perform water quality monitoring;
  • Seek funding for and construct restoration projects to reduce runoff;
  • Educate residents, policy makers and regulators about problems facing the river;
  • Advocate for the river by patrolling for critical area violations and legally challenging developers and regulators when merited.

Please consider joining us on this journey.
