Water Protector Certificate

Water Protector LogoThe Water Protector Certification recognizes homeowners and businesses who are successfully taking steps to improve water quality by reducing the amount of storm water and pollution leaving their property.  Becoming a Water Protector is a simple way to help protect the Dan River basin. 

While you may not be able to see a waterway from your home or business, your actions still impact the Dan River and its tributaries.  Every time it rains, fertilizers and herbicides, bacteria from pet waste, chemicals and sediment flows from your property into local waterways.  This pollution results in everything from cloudy water to algae blooms and can make our waterways unsafe for swimming and fishing.

Anyone in the Dan River basin can become a Certified Water Protector!
