Chattahoochee Riverkeeper actively uses advocacy, education, research, communication, cooperation, monitoring and legal action to protect and preserve the Chattahoochee and its watershed. From the north Georgia mountains to the Florida border, the Chattahoochee River is impacted by unplanned development, storm runoff and trash from industries, roads and construction sites, and discharges from sewage treatment plants. Withdrawals from the river by municipalities and industries also affect its health through consumptive loss of water that is not returned to the river, impacting downstream water quality, recreation and ecology.

While significant improvements have been made in the river 
and we've enjoyed a tremendous year of success, serious challenges remain.

As we serve nearly 4 million people who rely on the Chattahoochee River for drinking water and recreation, we need the support of community members like you to make a lasting difference in the future of the river. As we rely heavily on volunteers and in-kind support, 85 percent of each donated dollar goes directly to our programs -- making us a 4-star rated organization by Charity Navigator!
