Carvalho & Associates is pleased to annouce its support to the Coosa River Basin Initiative as a Sponsor and Committe Host for the 2014 Annual River Revelry held in Rome, GA. River Revelry. A Biodiversity Bash has historically included about as many events as the Upper Coosa has endemic aquatic species (30, for the record). River Revelry 2013 carries on that tradition. This year River Revelry will serve as a “confluence” for multiple events that will converge on Heritage Park for what’s sure to be a rip-roaring good time.
CRBI is a 501(c)(3) grassroots environmental organization based in Rome, Georgia with the mission of informing and empowering citizens to protect, preserve and restore North America’s most biologically diverse river basin. Since 1992, our staff, board and members have served as advocates for the wise stewardship of the natural resources of the Upper Coosa River basin, or watershed, which stretches from southeastern Tennessee and north central Georgia to Weiss Dam in Northeast Alabama. This includes the Coosa River, the Etowah and Oostanaula rivers and the tributaries of these waterways as well as the land drained by these streams and the air that surrounds this land area.
A member of the international Waterkeeper Alliance, CRBI is also known as the Upper Coosa Riverkeeper. As such, they work to enforce the Clean Water Act, by monitoring pollution and polluters. When pollution problems are identified we use all means necessary, including legal action, to correct these problems.
As a member of the Georgia Water Coalition and Alabama Rivers Alliance, CRBI works to influence water resource policy in both Georgia and Alabama so that clean and plentiful water is available today and for future generations. CRBI works in four program areas: advocacy, education, water monitoring and restoration. Our two staff members, 15-member Board of Directors and 6-member Advisory Board direct the efforts of CRBI’s more than 800 members.
