Lower Mississippi Riverkeeper
As part of the Waterkeeper Alliance our goal is to champion clean water and the communities which it serves.
The Lower Mississippi RIVERKEEPER® is the first project of its kind for Louisiana and the first on the Mississippi River. We serve to energize current activists to participate in environmental decisions, educate the public and government leaders about environmental challenges and economic opportunities regarding the Mississippi River and how reduced water pollution benefits all of us.
Our main objectives are:
- Educating the public and community leaders about water quality concerns along the River
- Strengthen the environmental community in Louisiana and recruit new activists to insist on improved river conditions.
- Monitor and investigate reported incidents.
- Target polluters and compel compliance with the Clean Water Act to reduce pollution into the River.
