Waters in the Spotlight
Alaska has millions of rivers, lakes, and streams that are incredibly important to the well-being of our state. The public has shown a high level of interest in the waters showcased here. The three state resource agencies: Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Department of Environmental Conservation, and Department of Natural Resources; also consider these waters to be of high priority because of their significant ecological and community value. These waters are currently receiving, or have received in the past, water quality assessments and evaluations of actions needed to protect or improve water quality.
