GWF Board Member Tom Jones and his wife, Celeste (far right) enjoy a family style dinner at the Clean 13 celebration.

On March 14, approximately 200 guests gathered for the Georgia Water Coalition’s Clean 13 Celebration to recognize extraordinary efforts on the part of businesses, industries, local governments, non-profit organizations, and individuals to protect Georgia’s water and natural resources. Some of the outstanding projects included modifying an old dam to open up the Middle Oconee River, recycling water to reduce demands on the Flint River, and implementing high-tech irrigation systems for farmers.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE 2018 CLEAN 13 HONOREES.
