Arkansas Forests &
Drinking Water Collaborative

September Highlight:
We have the rare opportunity to share and celebrate the DE-listing of an impaired waterway in Arkansas, the West Fork of the White River.  Yes, for all of us skeptics out here, this is actually possible in our ever-growing landscape.  This is also showcased on EPA's success stories page.  Please watch this video to learn more about how 20 years of conservation work has transformed a watershed right here in our backyard.

Sixty-one  percent (61%) of all Arkansans drink water that originates in forested watersheds. Maintaining healthy forests is the best protection that we can provide for our water.
