ACWP Mission Statement: Bringing interested citizens and water users together through a neutral forum in order to identify water related issues and challenges and become part of the solution for long-term water quality improvement and conservation in a non-regulatory way.
The Alabama Clean Water Partnership, a statewide 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is a diverse and inclusive coalition of public-private interest groups and individuals working together to improve, protect and preserve water resources and aquatic ecosystems in Alabama. Through the ACWP, ten River Basin Facilitators and a Statewide Coordinator are tasked with implementing watershed efforts in order to achieve the following goals:
• Improved Communication to promote information sharing and nonpoint source education, broad awareness of resource availability, and networking with others facing the same challenges.
• Data and Information Sharing through the creation of a communications and technical assistance network so that a more complete account of each river’s water quality is available when making watershed decisions.
• Improved Coordination between community-based groups, municipalities, and industries to prevent the duplication of effort and to acquire, streamline and maximize resources.
• Opportunity for Collaboration in decision-making and the development of watershed management plans, as well as in the implementation of watershed projects and TMDLs (Total Maximum Daily Loads).
