Each year since 1986 the American Rivers organization has surveyed the nation's waterways to determine which are most distressed. After a devastating year of watershed runoff and heavily polluted Lake Okeechobee water releases into the Caloosahatchee on the heels of the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons, CRCA-Riverwatch documented the unprecedented destruction and submitted its evidence to American Rivers. The scale of the damage to the river and estuary's water quality, aquatic habitat, fish and wildlife was recognized as a national level ecological tragedy and American Rivers named the Caloosahatchee as the 7th Most Endangered River of 2006. The purpose of this list is to heighten awareness among the public and the local, state, and national officials in an effort to prompt action. Rivers in Florida have been named to this list 5 times in the past 21 years: the Everglades in 1992 and 1993, Chattahoochee River in 1998, Apalachicola River in 2002, and the Peace River in 2004.
