River Proud

Charleston’s ‘River Proud Program’ is an initiative of the Charleston Stormwater Department to recognize the citizens of Charleston who take action to reduce stormwater runoff and pollution by successfully managing stormwater on their property.

Why is Charleston, WV River Proud?

Charleston West Virginia is nestled at the convergence of two beautiful rivers, the Elk and the Kanawha. These rivers provide the city with a precious natural resource that many parts of the United States and the World are devoid of. These rivers are the pride of our city!
