The Waterkeeper is a full-time, non-governmental ombudsman whose special responsibility is to be the full-time public advocate for a water body. Fundamentally, it is the waterkeeper’s job to advocate compliance with environmental laws, respond to citizen complaints, identify problems that affect his or her body of water and recommend appropriate solutions. Waterkeepers are leaders in ensuring that communities maintain control over their local waterways when threatened by development, industrialization or toxic pollution.
The Ottawa Riverkeeper is a licensed member of the Waterkeeper Alliance, an international grassroots advocacy organization founded by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
