Why Care About Our Rivers?

So… how many times did you throw out trash into the river and thought nothing will happen?

Did you think that this woul not destroy river's health?

If you answered no, then there is something wrong with the way you view nature.

If you answered yes, then you are visiting the right website.

One day my friend and I were sitting in school learning about photosynthesis- then something struck us. There are groups that save whales, save trees, but NOBODY invented a group which would protect and clean the rivers.

That is why we invented a group “Save Our Rivers” –SOR. We contacted many countries and asked for their health river status. Check for the results on the rivers to see how polluted they already are. We received many results and now we are planning on doing something.

We are planning to contact the government to find finance to clean the rivers. If want to help out, but you’re still wondering if this group would help- check out the health of the rivers by looking through the pages on the right.

The health of the river is based on many elements: E.Coli, Dissolved Oxygen, Flowrate, Macroinvertebrates, Turbidity, Nitrates, Phosphates, pH, Temperature and Wind Speed.

Many rivers are being turned into useless tributaries, because nobody cares about them anymore.

Well, it is up to us now. We will be the ones trying to survive when the water is going to be scarce. Thus, help us clean the rivers and make this world a better place.  

* some of the rivers do not have everything and no results are present.

THE HEALTHIEST RIVER IS: Sava River, then it's Clear Creek, Ohio River and the last one is Chicago.

80% of the earth's surface is water. More than 97% of this water is in the oceans; 2% is locked in polar icecaps; and less than 1% is in freshwater lakes, streams and groundwater.

Next to oxygen, water is the most vital element to continued life. Without water, people die in about seven days.
