On June 6, 2019, River Valley Ingredients, owned by Tyson Foods, released hundreds of thousands of gallons of partially treated wastewater and animal bi-products into the Mulberry Fork of the Black Warrior River causing a massive fish kill. The effects of this continue to ripple through our waters and our community. We are committed to stopping this and other pollution that enters our watershed. It is the belief of the Sipsey Heritage Commission that our community deserves clean water.
