At 100,000 miles of waterways, Idaho has a treasure trove of incredible rivers. That also means Idaho has a lot to lose.
Idaho's rivers provide drinking water, recreation, hydroelectric power and crucial habitat for fish and other wildlife species. Idaho's rivers are the lifeblood of the state's cherished open spaces and wild country.
For more than 27 years Idaho Rivers United has worked to take a comprehensive look at the many forces that impact rivers and fish, including dams, mining and municipal water use and has accumulated an extensive history of notable accomplishments.
