The Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation works to protect the Catawba-Wateree River Basin's lakes, streams and rivers. The Foundation says that 1.7 million people in our region depend on the Catawba River. The Catawba has been labeled as “endangered” by multiple organizations in recent years, and in the past, we've discussed the reasons for that endangerment. Today, we'll check in with the Catawba Riverkeeper to find out the current state of the Catawba River, and about many of the issues the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation is following, including water levels in the area due to all the rain we've been having, long term water quantity, and much more, when Charlotte Talks.
