Annual River Star Businesses Recognition Luncheon

Because the Elizabeth River is one of the mightiest military and industrial ports in the world, restoring this urban river to health depends on leadership from the business and government facilities that line its shore.

Thank you to the 120 facilities that together are making environmental stewardship the business standard on the Elizabeth. We salute these business and goverment facilities for reducing pollution voluntarily by 331 million pounds and restoring 1,787 acres of wildlife habitat on the river since the program started in 1997.
