Keeping our River Clean

Fast Facts about the River

Sure you want a clean river because it's more fun to swim and boat in, but what are the economic benefits of having a clean river? Well, those are interrelated subjects. If we maintain a beautiful river people want to come see it. It is, after all, one of the most diverse and clean rivers in the United States. The more people out visiting the St. Croix, the better local businesses do, which subsequently means more money in the community. And this all results in our river towns being better places to live. Another major reason keeping our river clean is so important is the cost of replacing pipelines. Zebra Mussels are a huge concern for public works departments who have access points to the river. If these pipes are clogged by massive amounts of zebra mussels, the cost to replace them would be enormous.


Ways to Protect the River

Always throw out your trash, and volunteer to clean up others' trash along the river. Keeping our river and its shoreline clean allows people to enjoy the river and communities to prosper.

The St. Croix River Association is dedicated to preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species as we protect, restore and celebrate the St. Croix River and its watershed.
