About

The Ottawa River Coalition

The Ottawa River Coalition was formed in 1995 to help improve the health of the Ottawa River.

The Ottawa River predates all other life in this area. The role of the river in the settlement was huge. it was a primary source of drinking water and water for other uses. The fish in the river were a source of food. boats and rafts allowed people to travel or transport across distances. The river powered mills for cutting lumber and turning corn and wheat into meal and flour. Early sources of electric power came from rivers.
