Keeping Watch Over Our Waters Since 2010

Our organization works to answer the simple questions like “is it safe to swim?”, “are the fish safe to eat?”, and “what can I do to make the Coosa healthier for my community?” to ensure the public is aware of issues that impact the river, recreation, public health, and property value.
