Urban Waters Voices: Edwin Revell


This video features Edwin Revell, a volunteer with the Village Creek Society, describing some of the challenges faced by the communities in the Village Creek Watershed of Birmingham, Alabama (e.g. flooding and water quality issues) and how this nonprofit organization is working to educate residents in order to strengthen efforts to address these challenges. Village Creek was once the drinking water source for the City of Birmingham but degradation from flooding and industrial contamination has severely altered this once pristine place.

The Village Creek Society (www.villagecreeksociety.org) hopes to improve these waters so that they can once again benefit residences, businesses, schools, and churches in its watershed.
