Oregon River Safety and Preservation Alliance started this petition to Oregon State Marine Board and

The Willamette River is the crown jewel of Oregon and needs your voice to protect it.

Sign to stop the petition to remove wake sport regulations on the Willamette!

Sign to support the Oregon State Marine Board's proposal to keep surfing in surf only zones and in areas in which the activity is somewhat sustainable.

Demand the Department of State Lands, DEQ, and Oregon Department of Fish and wildlife to monitor the embankments and habitat to determine if and where these activities are sustainable.

With essential salmon habitat, hundreds of non-motorized users, and soft silt sensitive embankments, the river is highly susceptible to negative impacts caused by unnatural activity.

Surf size waves to surf a narrow and fragile river are not sustainable on the Willamette River.  Rapid erosion has been documented.  Safety issues have reached an all time high, with vision impaired paddlers being capsized in the river, twice last summer, rowing boats have been swamped, 2 high school skull teams have had boats broken in half, dumping students in the river.    Private and public docks and property are. being destroyed.

Sign the petition as soon as possible!  Be a voice for the voiceless environment.
