Envisioning clean water for you,
your children, and your grandchildren.


The James River Basin Partnership (JRBP) is a grassroots, not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization working to improve and protect the water quality of the
springs, streams, rivers, and lakes in the James River watershed which
consists of almost a million acres of land in portions of eight counties.

The late Larry Martin understood the importance of water quality and conservation. He recognized one of the most difficult parts of this commitment to river clean-ups was the fundraising aspect. In memory of Larry Martin, the Martin family has worked with JRBP to set up a memorial fund that will directly benefit JRBP’s River Rescue each year.
