ATLANTA
- More than 50 employees from the corporate office, Atlanta Junction and Dacula Station removed 2100lbs. of trash from the Chattahoochee River and Rottenwood Creek near the Paces Mill Chattahoochee Recreation Area with the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper on October 27.

The Chattahoochee Misspelled WordRiverkeeper (CRK) hosted the activity and guided employees as they waded in Misspelled WordRottenwood Creek, hiked nearby trails and collected trash on the Chattahoochee River via boat.

"We have a long relationship with Colonial Pipeline," said Misspelled WordBecca Klein, development director of CRK. "They have been with us almost since the beginning as supporters. Thank you for your help, and thank you for all the support, transparency and communications as a partner to protect the Chattahoochee Watershed."

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.
