The Rocky Branch Watershed Alliance is a grassroots movement that unites concerned residents, businesses, governments and organizations to restore water quality, properly manage flooding, care for related natural resources within the Rocky Branch Watershed, while encouraging complimentary and environmentally responsible development of adjacent land.
This Alliance formed in December of 2011 as a project of Sustainable Midlands guided by a steering committee comprised of stake holders representing the community, University of South Carolina, City of Columbia, Richland County, SC DHEC, The Congaree Riverkeeper and Gills Creek Watershed Association.
The goals for the RBWA include: to develop cost effect solutions to the devastating flooding; to improve the water quality in the stream and the Congaree River; to restore habitat for native wildlife and plants; and to plan a greenway from Five Points to the Granby Riverwalk.

There is an opportunity for everyone who lives, works, learns and plays in the watershed to help!

We are dedicated to restoring the watershed through education, grassroots action, public and private partnerships, remediation projects, and controlled development.
