Carmeuse’s Longview Operation Collaborates with Cahaba Riverkeepers

Carmeuse’s Longview Operation in Saginaw, Ala., attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Mine Reclamation Project at the Cahaba River National Wildlife Refuge (CRNWR) by the Cahaba Riverkeepers.

Over the past few years, the Longview operation has collaborated with the Cahaba Riverkeepers and US Fish & Wildlife Services on a variety of projects, including providing volunteers for roadside clean-up and offering the necessary rock and boulders to repair the Refuge’s roads after washouts and erosion.

Cahaba Riverkeepers was established in 2009 with the goal of preserving the ecological integrity of the Cahaba River and its watershed, ensuring clean water and a healthy aquatic environment, and preserving the recreational and aesthetic qualities of the river basin. 

David Butler, speaking on behalf of the Cahaba Riverkeepers, expressed his gratitude, saying, “Thank you for visiting Bibb County. I cannot think of the Refuge without appreciating how you have all stepped up to help, and the completion of the reclamation work is going to provide some great opportunities for people to enjoy it!”

Assistance from Greg Champion and Jackie Padgett was crucial in coordinating Carmeuse’s efforts for these projects, Carmeuse noted.
