Our mission is to restore, revitalize, and protect the ecological health of the Intrenchment Creek Watershed Basin by creating structure, process and, conditions for residents to empower themselves and safeguard their communities through a foundation and application of equity, sustainability, and environmental justice principles.
ICCSC is working to reverse decades of environmental injustice impacting the residents of our south Atlanta communities.
Intrenchment Creek is a primary watershed area in south and south east Atlanta, and we recognize that many residents may not be aware of the creek because much of it is buried underneath asphalt and concrete. In fact, that development is a major reason why we see significant flooding in communities like Peoplestown when we have big rain storms. The creek is beneath us in pipes, right under our feet and our streets–but when it rains, the pipes can’t hold all that rainwater and it has to go somewhere. And unfortunately, too often that means in our homes and in our roadways.
In light of that, ICCSC is working to reverse decades of environmental injustice impacting the residents of our south Atlanta communities. Over the past couple of months, our organization has been one of several leading an initiative to ensure that the city strengthens existing legislation aimed at holding developers accountable for the ways their projects can cause flooding and flooding-related displacement in our communities.
