Interested in Local Water Resources? Metro Water District Needs You

The Metro Water District is seeking interested residents from Paulding County to serve on the Coosa and Chattahoochee Basin Advisory Councils.

The Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District (Metro Water District) is seeking interested residents from Paulding County to serve on the Coosa and Chattahoochee Basin Advisory Councils, two of six councils in the 15-county region that help develop and implement water resources plans for the region. The councils provide valuable input to the Metro Water District’s planning process and related implementation activities by representing the wide variety of stakeholders that rely on the region’s water resources.

The councils represent the major river basins within the planning region: Chattahoochee, Coosa/Etowah, Flint, Ocmulgee and Oconee as well as Lake Lanier. The Metro Water District encourages interested citizens to apply as well as persons who represent environmental, business, real estate, recreation, neighborhood, development, agriculture, utility, academic, water resources and other interests.

Individuals must reside within the river basin of the council for which they apply. Members serve two-year terms and may be reappointed for additional terms. Councils hold regular quarterly meetings but may also hold special meetings as needed to provide input on Metro Water District activities and actions.

The application for Basin Advisory Council membership is available on the Metro Water District’s Web site, www.northgeorgiawater.org. The deadline to apply is May 17.

For more information, contact the Metro Water District by telephone or email at 404-463-3344 or sskinner@atlantaregional.com.
