Follow The River

The path of Rochester through time has been defined by water, namely Lake Ontario, the Erie Canal, and the Genesee River. The river, in particular, was the driver behind the city’s emergence in the 19th century as a producer of flour and other goods through its powering of the many mills that clustered along its banks. But even as the steam engine emerged and the frontier continued to push West, the river remained central to city life. City commerce centered around (and over) the river despite the annual floods until a determined effort to “clean up” the city removed most of the buildings. Even the Erie Canal, a once important (but not universally loved) waterway, was rerouted to bypass the city entirely. Today the river is mostly taken for granted. Due to the two waterfalls within the city limits, the river is divided into two unconnected navigable sections. At the Lake Ontario end, there’s a port that sees almost no commercial traffic s...

‘Science Be Dammed’: Learning From History’s Mistake on the Colorado River
 
What We’re Learning Ahead of the World’s Largest Dam-Removal Project
http://www.earthisland.org/journal/index.php/articles/entry/largest-dam-removal-project-klamath-river-science
The Klamath is a river in peril, plagued by dangerously poor water quality and collapsing salmon populations. That could start to change as early as 2022, when four dams are likely to come down on the river — the biggest dam-removal and river-restoration project in history. Dam removal is expected to help solve many, but not all, of the river’s challenges, and understanding the change that does happen is crucial to planning the next steps for improving the river’s health.

A river in my part of the world needs help!

Welcome to the Santa Fe River Bill of Rights Campaign (SAFEBOR)
FIVE REASONS TO SUPPORT SAFEBOR
1. Our laws are failing to protect the Santa Fe River because the river does not currently have legal rights of its own.
2. The Santa Fe River and springs are part of the largest concentration of #freshwater #springs in the world; they deserve to exist and to thrive.
3. The Santa Fe River is pivotal in the economic, social, cultural, and spiritual life of Alachua County’s citizens, and is used to “brand” Alachua County.
4. We want our children to be able to have the same experiences we’ve enjoyed in the springs and on the river.
5. The Santa Fe River springs are the top layer of the groundwater that supplies our #drinking #water. If we save the springs, we save our drinking water.

In Tatarstan, the Volga became very shallow. In the area of Kazan, islands appeared, the bottom was exposed, and an ancient paving appeared, which had been under water for many years. There are citizens with metal detectors, who detect old coins and various household items.

Weltenburger Enge, Donaudurchbruch / Danube breakthrough
The Danube is an extraordinary river: at around 2850 kilometres in length, it is the second longest river in Europe after the Volga. On this length, the Danube connects ten countries with very different cultures. It is also very idiosyncratic because it is the only major river in Europe that flows from west to east. It was and is one of the most important trade routes in Europe. On its long course, it takes on all the forms that a river can have: from almost stagnant waters to torrential torrents.

"The legislation, which has yet to be codified into domestic law, refers to the #river as an “indivisible, living whole,” conferring it “all the rights, powers, duties, and liabilities” of an individual."
 
This is the kind of #TreeHuggers we are:

We received 12" of rain in about 2 weeks of February. This creek runs almost all through downtown Huntsville, and it overflowed its banks during the storms. The banks are about 20' high. The "creek" is normally about 12" deep, and probably 75' wide. Anyway, yesterday we biked along the access road and happened upon some mud puddles with #bass (?) struggling to survive. We scooped up as many as we could and threw them into the #river. We probably lowered the risk of global catastrophe by 6 bass and 2 dozen #minnows.. you're welcome.

And no trip to the #creek would be complete without letting the #dog swim up and down the creek chasing those #ugly #ducks they allow to reproduce. No, he never even got close.

It’s only natural: the push to give rivers, mountains and forests legal rights
https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/apr/01/its-only-natural-the-push-to-give-rivers-mountains-and-forests-legal-rights
The emerging international rights-of-nature movement aims to address the way western legal systems treat nature as property, making the living world invisible to the law. It uses western legal constructs, such as personhood and rights-based approaches, to shift the status of nature from property to a subject in law in an effort to protect the natural world.
