Haw River Assembly protects the Haw River Watershed.

This includes nine hundred and twenty miles of streams feeding into the Haw along the 110 miles of the river, the 14,000 acres of Jordan Lake, and the plants, animals, and people who depend on the river. We work as advocates to stop pollution through our Haw Riverkeeper, and are building a watershed community that supports clean water through our outreach, education and water quality monitoring programs.
