Sen. Ron Wyden recognizes there is a need to protect Oregon's rivers and streams. Senator Wyden is making clean, clear and cold water a priority with Senate Bill 192, The River Democracy Act. Water is a resource that has been taken for granted, contaminated, degraded and compromised in its natural flow throughout the nation. With this legislation, we hope to find protection for the South Umpqua River along with other rivers. Equally deserving of protections are the streams that feed these rivers.
