Advocacy

CRBI uses federal, state and local laws to force action that protects, preserves and restores the Coosa River and its tributaries across a 5,000-square-mile land area stretching across north Georgia and northeast Alabama.
CRBI reviews pollution control permits for municipal and industrial wastewater facilities to prevent unnecessary pollution of our waterways, reviews land development plans to protect streams and wetlands, responds to citizen complaints of pollution problems and lobbies federal, state and local decision makers to secure laws that protect our water for boating, swimming, fishing and drinking water.
Head over to Protect Georgia to sign up for legislative updates concerning water laws in Georgia.
