This Is What We're Protecting: "We cannot afford to continue playing Russian Roulette with lives and our drinking water."

The Colonial Pipeline has hemorrhaged hundreds of thousands of gallons of gasoline into Alabama's waters resulting in an explosion and fire on October 31. Cahaba Riverkeeper works to monitor the river for leaks and other hazards, support clean up efforts, draw attention to this and other waterways at risk, and advocate for higher safety standards. Check out their work in responding to Colonial pipeline's five leaks in just the last year on the Cahaba Riverkeeper Facebook page.
