Thanks to the amazing response from the community and comments by Mobile Baykeeper the project was modified. The sewer line that is now in place was "hung" from the County Road 32 bridge, where a break or spill would be obvious and quickly fixed, a WIN for clean water and Fish River community members! This victory is clear proof that YOU can affect change!
Baldwin County Sewer Service is proposing to put a sewage line under the Fish River, a river utilized by many community members to recreate and which ultimately flows into Weeks Bay. Mobile Baykeeper and our members have raised significant concerns with this project. Allowing a sewage line under Fish River, would create the potential for a massive sewage spill.

If the two sides can come to an agreement this will be a WIN for residents living along Fish River, citizens of Alabama who enjoy fishing, boating, and swimming in the Fish River and Weeks Bay, and the unbelievably beautiful local environment. If not, the sewage line under the river will be a permanently looming threat to citizens, the River, and Weeks Bay.
