We Dare Defend Our Rivers

The Alabama Rivers Alliance is Alabama's statewide, nonprofit, water protection organization.

Networking over fifty grassroots water protection organizations across Alabama at the local level and advocating smart planning and reasonable laws at the state level, we work to ensure healthy waters for future generations by empowering the citizens of Alabama to protect our waterways.

 


Alabama Rivers Alliance Program Director Mitch Reid discusses the Alabama Rivers Alliance's mission and the Alabama Water Agenda with Leslie Grill of the Alabama Cooperative Extension System

He explores water policy, enforcement, coordination, and funding issues as outlined by the Alabama Water Agenda.

Alabama has over 145,100 miles of streams and rivers with more types of plants and animals living in them than any other state in the nation.  However, we also have one of the highest extinction rates in North America, many of which are species that live in our rivers.  Alabama’s precious water resources currently face many threats.  From improper enforcement of environmental regulations to the lack of planning and policy to ensure sustainable water for the future, our community is tasked with protecting the waters of the state for the health of the people and the life therein, or else we risk losing natural treasures that we can never retrieve. 

 

Our mission is to protect Alabama's rivers through water quality and quantity policy advocacy, grassroots organizing, and the providing of information to citizens in order to achieve clean and healthy watershed ecosystems, healthy people, strong economies, and a functioning democratic system of government in Alabama.
