For too long, the Elizabeth River, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay, has been infamous for pollution. Instead of lamenting the problem, we prefer to take hope from her strengths. From Great Bridge Lock to the naval base, you can see the importance of the Elizabeth River every day in Hampton Roads. She gives us our work and our play. The Elizabeth River Project is the catalyst for restoring the environmental health of this great harbor river while affirming her value to our port economy.
Our mission is to restore the Elizabeth River to the highest practical level of environmental quality through government, business and community partnerships.
The Elizabeth River Project is an independent, 501-(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in 1993 and governed by a board of directors.
