Rotary International and the United Nations Environmental Programme have formed an alliance to safeguard the Rio Cobre.
 
The St Catherine based river has been the scene of repeated release of toxic substances, resulting in several fish kills. 
 
Residents and fishers have mounted several protests, clamouring for the authorities to protect their livelihood which has been consistently affected by effluent spills.
 
President of the Rotary Club of Spanish Town, Michael Terrelonge said on Friday that the quality of the Rio Cobre must be prioritized.
