A letter from State Representative Joe Faust
“Alabama the beautiful” often describes where we call home. Encompassing that description are our many lakes, rivers, bays and miles of oceanfront. As Alabamians, we love our water and spend a great deal of time enjoying the bounty that lives within and around them.
It should come as no surprise to you that our precious water resources are facing growing challenges. Much of this has to do with growth, as our wonderful state attracts more and more people to live and work here. We also need to be better stewards as citizens, businesses, and communities, in terms of what we are allowing to go into our water. Nowhere is this more evident than in Baldwin County, where I am privileged to serve and where so much of our daily life revolves around our beautiful bays, rivers and coastline.
We have formed “Clean Water Alabama” a non -profit (501c3) whose purpose is to bring all of us together to meet this challenge and develop strategies and actions designed to help us become better stewards in protecting our water for generations to come. I can’t adequately convey the enthusiastic response we have received from all cross sections of Alabamians, who, like me, understand the importance of such an effort.
We would welcome your involvement and support.
