Broad Riverkeeper

The Broad Riverkeeper is the primary protector and spokesperson for the rivers and streams of the Broad River Watershed in the Western and Piedmont regions of North Carolina. MountainTrue’s Broad Riverkeeper, David Caldwell, works with communities and citizens in Rutherford, Polk, and Cleveland counties to monitor water quality and advocate for best management practices that will improve our waters for drinking, swimming, and fishing. From its headwaters along the Eastern Continental Divide and the South Mountains, these streams and rivers which join and flow into the “Big” Broad above the South Carolina state line are a treasure to be enjoyed and cared for.
