Georgia River Network serves on the lead

February 8, 2016

Georgia River Network serves on the leadership team of the Georgia Water Coalition (GWC).

The GWC is a group of more than 200 organizations representing well over a quarter of a million Georgians. Its mission is to protect and care for Georgia’s water resources, which are essential for sustaining Georgia’s prosperity, providing clean and abundant drinking water, preserving diverse aquatic habitats for wildlife and recreation, and strengthening property values. During Georgia’s legislative session, we like to keep you informed on the latest water issues being discussed at the State Capitol. This week marks the session’s 5th week.

Top Priorities:
SB 36: Protection of Georgia’s Well Water
Protection of Georgia’s Streams and Property Rights
