Don’t Pollute Irreplaceable River With Toxic Chemicals

Target: Walter Rabon, Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources

Goal: Prevent water pollution in the Altamaha River, safeguarding this vital ecosystem.

Water pollution in the Altamaha River has reached a critical juncture, imperiling the delicate balance of its aquatic ecosystem. This pristine river, renowned for its biodiversity and ecological significance, faces an existential threat due to unrelenting pollution. The detrimental impact of this contamination extends beyond aquatic life; it threatens public health, recreational activities, and the livelihoods of those dependent on the river.

Numerous industrial discharges and agricultural runoff have significantly compromised water quality in the Altamaha River. Toxic chemicals, excessive nutrients, and sedimentation are choking the life out of this essential waterway. Fish kills, compromised drinking water supplies, and habitat degradation have become distressingly common occurrences. The repercussions are far-reaching and extend downstream, impacting a wide array of interconnected ecosystems.

Sign the petition below to demand that the Georgia Environmental Protection Division takes immediate, comprehensive action to curb water pollution in the Altamaha River and protect this invaluable natural resource for current and future generations.


Dear Commissioner Rabon,

The Altamaha River, a jewel of Georgia’s natural heritage, stands on the precipice of irreversible harm due to unchecked water pollution. This ecological sanctuary, which is the lifeblood of countless species and a source of recreation and sustenance for many communities, is under siege.

Industrial discharges and agricultural runoff have wrought havoc on the Altamaha River’s water quality, unleashing a cascade of adverse effects. The distressing litany of fish kills, compromised drinking water quality, and habitat degradation paints a grim picture of the river’s decline. The consequences of inaction are not confined to this river alone; they reverberate throughout the interconnected web of ecosystems downstream.

We implore you to wield your authority to implement immediate and comprehensive measures to combat water pollution in the Altamaha River. Time is of the essence. The health of this vital natural resource hangs in the balance, and the responsibility to safeguard it rests with the Georgia Environmental Protection Division.
