Black Warrior Riverkeeper
Black Warrior Riverkeeper's mission is to protect and restore the Black Warrior River and its tributaries. We are a citizen based non-profit organization dedicated to improving water quality, habitat, recreation, and public health throughout our patrol area, the Black Warrior River watershed. This vital river basin is entirely contained within Alabama, America's leading state for freshwater biodiversity. Patrolling waterways, educating the public, and holding polluters accountable has made us an important proponent of clean water throughout the basin. Our staff identifies major pollution problems and works on cleaning them up while increasing public awareness. Black Warrior Riverkeeper is a proud member of Waterkeeper Alliance.
Flowing for roughly 300 miles, the Black Warrior River drains portions of seventeen counties in Alabama. The Black Warrior River watershed has 16,145.89 miles of mapped water and covers 6,276 square miles, entirely within Alabama, "The River State." Its headwaters consist of the beautiful Sipsey, Mulberry, and Locust Forks. Once these rivers merge west of Birmingham, the Black Warrior River proper forms the border of Jefferson and Walker counties. Near Tuscaloosa, the river flows out of the rocky Cumberland Plateau and enters the sandy East Gulf Coastal Plain, forming the border of Greene and Hale counties in the Black Belt. At Demopolis the Black Warrior flows into the Tombigbee River towards Mobile Bay.
