The Chattahoochee River serves nearly 4 million Georgians and 70 percent of metro Atlanta. Yet the area of our watershed north of Atlanta is among the nation’s smallest to serve a major metropolitan area.  Given the size of our watershed and our growing population, we have no choice but to use this precious resource wisely if we are going to have enough clean water for now and the future.
