SPECIAL GUEST - Cassidy Lord, President of Upper Oconee Watershed Network
What is untreated drinking water called and how do you protect it? Drinking water that is still in the natural environment is called source water. Source water protection is achieved through point and non-point source management at the watershed scale. Join the Upper Oconee Watershed Network and Oconee River Watershed Partnership to learn about source water protection in Georgia and current efforts in the Oconee River watershed.

Gather with us to learn, exchange information, and advocate together for clean plentiful water in Georgia! We hope to see you on November 18th on Zoom.

Register in advance for this meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
