Litter remains a significant pollution problem on the Coosa River and its many feeder streams. CRBI organizes local residents to conduct regular river and stream cleanups.
Additionally, CRBI works on projects to restore streams and stream banks to improve wildlife habitat and stream health.

Clean Ups

During recent years, CRBI has participated in or organized stream clean-ups that involved more than 400 volunteers and removed more than 30,000 pounds of trash from our rivers.
