Who We Are

Water is a vital part of our everyday lives and that’s why it is up to US to protect it. Upstream Matters because water originating upstream of our city impacts the quality of water we receive down in our communities. By bringing attention to where our water comes from, we can help keep it safe and clean. Everyone’s contribution to clean water from upstream helps small businesses thrive, nourishes local farms and, above all, provides clean water for everyone!
