Urban Waters Voices: Marjorie Mayfield Jackson


This video features Marjorie Mayfield Jackson, Executive Director of the Elizabeth River Project, describing some of the challenges faced by communities along the Elizabeth River in Virginia (e.g. legacy contamination from maritime activity and flooding) and how the organization uses voluntary action and cooperation to promote cleanup efforts.

This nonprofit organization (www.elizabethriver.org) sees its goal as working to restore the Elizabeth River, a superfund site, to the highest practical level of environmental quality through government, business, and community partnerships.
