The Coosa River Basin Initiative anticipates a busy ’22 as they advance their efforts to protect area waterways.
Jesse Demonbreun-Chapman, Executive Director, indicates that a number of restoration projects are already underway in Northwest Georgia. The goal is cleaner water for humans and wildlife.
The CRBI will expand its bacterial monitoring of area waterways during the summer to include part of Lake Weiss and Lake Allatoona. Some specialized interns will soon be sought to assist with this endeavor. Bacterial monitoring provides paddlers with an update on bacterial levels before they hit the water, says Demonbreun-Chapman.
Demonbreun-Chapman adds that the CRBI is also championing the cause of cleaner water before state legislators during the 2022 session of the Georgia General Assembly, which began last week.
