Communities in the Valley count on clean, abundant water for drinking water supply, farming, recreation and tourism. Our world-class streams and rivers form the headwaters of the Shenandoah and James Rivers and then flow to the Chesapeake Bay.
The Alliance works with local government, watershed groups, and agencies to advance the local programs and planning for erosion and sediment control, agricultural best management practices, storm water management and regional water planning.
