The Georgia Wildlife Federation has been a leader in the Georgia Water Coalition since the coalition began in 2002. Ongoing activities include developing biennial reports, facilitating and hosting partner meetings, lobbying for clean water during each Georgia legislative session.

The Georgia Water Coalition is committed to protecting and caring for Georgia’s surface water and groundwater resources. If your environmental group, church, university, homeowner association, hunting and fishing club, or other civic organization is interested in joining, visit www.gawater.org.

Georgia Wildlife Federation facilitates the development of the GWC’s Biennial Reports. These reports are used to convey water management recommendations to Georgia’s leaders and elected officials. Read the reports at www.gawater.org

 

Capitol Conservation Day is an annual opportunity for all Georgians to gather at the Capitol to tell our state representatives and senators that we value water for our families, economy, health, and future generations. Learn more at www.gawater.org.

 

Georgia Wildlife Federation facilitates and often hosts GWC partner meetings throughout the year. For details on upcoming meetings, visit www.gawater.org.

Georgia Water Coalition’s Mission is to protect and care for Georgia’s surface water and groundwater resources, which are essential for sustaining economic prosperity, providing clean and abundant drinking water, preserving diverse aquatic habitats for wildlife and recreation, strengthening property values, and protecting the quality of life for current and future generations.

GWC logoThe Georgia Water Coalition was formed in 2002 in response to an initiative to privatize water in Georgia. The Georgia Wildlife Federation was a founding member along with Southern Environmental Law Center, Georgia Conservancy, and Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper.

GWC’s first major success came in 2003 with the defeat of legislation which would have allowed for water permit trading and privatization of our state water resources. Fifteen years later, the Georgia Water Coalition (GWC) is an even more formidable voice for Georgia’s water with over 240 partner organizations from around the state and the southeast.
