COLONIAL PIPELINE'S ALABAMA TEAM PLANTS TREES WITH CAHABA RIVERKEEPER IN CAHABA WILDLIFE REFUGE



WEST BLOCTON, Ala. - Colonial's Pelham team joined the Cahaba Riverkeeper, Friends of Cahaba and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services to plant trees and remove evasive species from the Cahaba Wildlife Refuge on the banks of the Cahaba River on Friday, October 6, 2017. The goal of the activity was the restore the forest with more native foliage which protects the Cahaba River.

Colonial remains in close communication with the Cahaba Riverkeeper and other stakeholders in Alabama since the incidents of 2016 in Shelby County, Alabama. "We appreciate their dedication to their pledge and remain optimistic that together we can minimize the risk of future incidents," said David Butler, Cahaba Riverkeeper.   

Colonial Pipeline partners with conservation groups active on its ROW in every state it operates in. This engagement allows Colonial to better fulfill its mission to protect the environment we share our pipeline with. In 2017, Colonial will participate in 12 events with local conservation groups, most occurring in October.

Colonial contractors from CECO Pipeline Services and Markstein also participated in the outing.
