Renew Our Rivers

Waterway Cleanup

Georgia's 70,150 miles of streams and rivers need your help. Our waterways provide us with fresh drinking water, great recreational opportunities like canoeing and fishing, and they serve as a pleasant respite from our busy day-to-day lives. This is your opportunity to help by giving something back to the environment. Help us clean our rivers, streams, lakes and wetlands by joining in support of a local cleanup program.

Renew Our Rivers/Rivers Alive

Each year Georgia Power sponsors and participates in river and lake cleanups around the state near many of our generating facilities. These events are hosted and sponsored by Georgia Power though Southern Company's Renew Our Rivers initiative.

In addition, Georgia Power is a corporate sponsor of Rivers Alive, a volunteer waterway cleanup event targeting streams, rivers, lakes, beaches and wetlands across Georgia. Read information on getting involved in one or several planned events.

We invite all Georgians to step up, get involved and help protect Georgia's waterways with us! Check out the resources below.
