This week, river, lake, and water activists from all over the country will flow to a common delta in Pine Mountain, Georgia, for the Waterkeeper Alliance’s annual conference, hosted by the Chattahoochee and Flint riverkeepers. The event will close out Saturday night with a keynote address from Alliance president Robert F. Kennedy Jr., son of the late Attorney General, U.S. Senator, and presidential candidate, who has made his own name as an environmental crusader. As chief prosecuting attorney for the Hudson Riverkeeper in New York, he helped preserve that urban artery. And in advance of his Georgia speech, Atlanta magazine posed a few questions about our region’s own embattled and unsung waterway.
