Urban Waters Voices: Beth Stewart


This video features Beth Stewart, Executive Director for the Cahaba River Society, describing some of the challenges faced by communities in the Cahaba River Watershed and the residents of Birmingham, Alabama (e.g. pollution that increases drinking water costs) and how the organization is using positive recognition and educating residents in order to improve the environmental decision making in the watershed. As Alabama”s longest remaining stretch of free-flowing river and the primary drinking water source for one-fifth of the state”s people the Cahaba River is also a treasure of biological diversity of national and global importance.

The Cahaba River Society (www.cahabariversociety.org) sees its goal as working to protect this natural resource for the communities that rely on it and to serve the diverse freshwater creatures who depend on it.
