We strengthen Alabama’s economy and ecology. The Coosa-Alabama River Improvement Association, Inc. (CARIA) promotes the multipurpose use of waterways. We also advocate for the environmental protection of the Alabama, Coosa, and Tallapoosa river basins.
A not-for-profit organization, CARIA aims to strengthen both Alabama’s economy and ecology. Join us in our efforts to:
- Develop waterways with a balanced, reasonable approach, and understanding of costs
- Increase the use of barges—the safest, most efficient, environmentally friendly transportation
- Provide recreational opportunities and other activities across our rivers
