Mission Statement

To improve the Village Creek Environment for its entire length of 44 miles to benefit over 300,000 or more residence, businesses, schools, and churches in its watershed.

Description

Village Creek Human and Environmental Justice Society, Inc. (VCS) started as Coalition #1 in the 1980's followed by Coalition #2 in 1996 to address extensive flooding in residential communities in the Village Creek Watershed. The Army Corps of Engineers many studies did not make attempts to "stop" the flooding nor to "upgrade" the quality of the industrial polluted waters that once, in early Birmingham, severed as its drinking water and then became the water that brought the "magic" and "money economy" to Jefferson County. But human justice was overlookedand VCS has worked and is still working to improve the quality of life in the 3 sections of the 44 mile watershed:

Headwater Section: From Roebuck to East Lake

Mid Section: From North Birmingham to Ensley/South Pratt to Mulga

Lower Section: From Bayview to Black Warrior River
