Protecting Healthy River Flows for Georgia

Georgia River Network

Amount: $80,000
Grant Period: 1/1/2012 to 12/31/2013
Program: Environment
Program Area: Addressing the Freshwater Challenge
Geographic Focus: United States: Georgia: Georgia (At Large)

Georgia ranks third in the nation for aquatic biodiversity, and the state's waterways provide a range of other social benefits from recreation to drinking water. At the same time, a number of factors threaten the health of Georgia's rivers, including the growing water demands throughout the state, and particularly Atlanta, the region's largest metro area. The Georgia River Network, a statewide organization serving the needs of Georgia's river groups, will participate in and lead efforts to positively influence the outcome of water management policy discussions at the metro, state, and interstate levels. This will include leadership roles in two coalitions working on such issues, one at the state level and the other at the interstate level.
