Take the plunge for clean water! Submit a nomination for the Clean 13!

Summary

The Georgia Water Coalition’s inaugural Clean 13 Report will highlight extraordinary efforts on the part of businesses, industries, local governments, non-profit organizations, and individuals to protect the water and natural resources of Georgia. Examples include:

  • businesses using innovation to solve pressing environmental problems;
  • local governments going above and beyond minimum requirements to protect water or land;
  • industries reducing water use, eliminating waste or implementing other sustainability programs;
  • non-profit organizations leveraging citizen activism to create change in their communities; or,
  • individuals leading projects to solve a community-wide water pollution problem.

By highlighting these efforts, the Coalition hopes to inspire others to emulate this work and create cleaner, stronger, more sustainable communities across the state. Anyone may submit a Clean 13 nomination…including the entity seeking recognition.

Nomination and Awards Process

A panel of representatives from the Georgia Water Coalition will review the nominations, and winners will be notified of their selection by April 21. The inaugural Clean 13 Report will be published in Spring 2017. Winners will be recognized at a gala event to raise money to support the work of the Georgia Water Coalition.

The Georgia Water Coalition works to assure enough clean water for this and future generations.
