Charleston Waterkeeper is a data-driven, nonprofit organization focused 100% on water quality issues in the Ashley/Cooper River Basin. We operate on the front lines, working with a strong, grassroots community of passionate water users to patrol and monitor Charleston’s waterways. As part investigator, scientist, lawyer, and advocate, we identify and document water quality issues and work towards pragmatic solutions.

Charleston Waterkeeper is dedicated to protecting the public’s right to swimmable, drinkable, fishable water. Our jurisdiction includes the Charleston Harbor, the Ashley, Cooper, Wando, and Stono Rivers, and coastal areas.  

Charleston Waterkeeper is a proud member program of the Waterkeeper Alliance – a movement of nearly 200 Waterkeeper programs fighting for clean water and strong communities worldwide.

Meet the dedicated staff and board of directors that make all of this possible.
