James River Basin Partnership Works to Protect Water Quality of the James

In this segment of Making Democracy Work, Debbie Good talks with Joe Pitts, executive director of the James River Basin Partnership, about the organization.

According to Pitts, James River Basin Partnership was founded in 1997 as an ad hoc committee of individuals concerned about water quality in the James River.

He says it's a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to protect the water quality of the river, streams, lakes and springs of the James River Basin.

JRBP does things like improve riparian conservation easements, work with low-impact development issues and address non-point source pollution.
