Water conservation is not a passing fad limited to "dry years." The Chattahoochee River serves 3.5 million Georgian's and 70% of metro Atlanta. Yet the area of our watershed north of Atlanta is among the smallest to serve a major metropolitan area in the country.
Using water wisely year round -- in wet years and dry years -- is common sense. Water conservation is the most cost-effective and environmentally sound way to control the demands on our rivers, streams and lakes. Our report Filling the Water Gap: Conservation Successes and Missed Opportunities in Metro Atlanta is filled with examples of how local governments and businesses across metro Atlanta are saving water, energy, and money by implementing cost-effective measures. Much remains to be done, but we are on our way to a more sustainable future.
You, too, can be a part of these sustainable solutions! See menu to RIGHT for tips on how to save water, energy, and money! View or request a CRK presentation of Tapped Out: the Drying Up of Atlanta, which teaches participants about the causes and solutions for our water crisis.
