Posted on June 9th, 2022

Pamlico-Tar Riverkeeper Jill Howell and Neuse Riverkeeper Samantha Krop were in Washington, D.C. this week for Waterkeeper Alliance’s annual conference. On Wednesday, the two Riverkeepers visited Capitol Hill to speak with North Carolina Congressman Greg Murphy and aides to North Carolina’s two senators, Richard Burr and Thom Tillis, about our watersheds and encourage them to support legislation to provide a clean-water future for all North Carolina residents. The weeklong conference brings Riverkeepers from across the world together to work with another to resolve the challenges our waterways are facing.
