USGS Streamgage Funding

The ACA has joined with numerous other organizations including the Interstate Council on Water Policy to address the potential lack of future funding for the USGS streamgages.

Yesterday, ACA Executive Director Wade Blackwood spoke to the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee in the Hart Senate Office Building.  You might have even seen him on C-Span!

This morning, ACA Chief Operating Officer Chris Stec is meeting with the Office of Management and Budget's Interior Branch at the New Executive Office Building of the White House.

Learn more about the ACA's role in working to ensure that USGS stremgages are available to all paddlers. Click here.

Everyday, the ACA staff and volunteers work on behalf of paddlers across the country.  Whether it's education, stewardship, competition, insurance, or trying to make sure there is federal funding for an important resource (USGS streamgages) the ACA is here for all those who wet a paddle.  If you're able, please consider supporting the ACA either by joining, or donating your time and energy on behalf of paddlesports.
