Georgia Water Coalition’s Dirty Dozen 2014
A Call to Action

Georgia Water Coalition’s “Dirty Dozen” list highlights the worst offenses to Georgia’s waters.

The Dirty Dozen shines a spotlight on pending threats to Georgia’s water as well as state policies and failures that ultimately harm—or could harm—Georgia property owners, downstream communities, fish and wildlife, hunters and anglers, and boaters and swimmers.

The Georgia Water Coalition publishes this list as a call to action for our state’s leaders and its citizens to correct pollution problems, eliminate the wasteful use of our state and local tax dollars and restore our streams, rivers, lakes and coastal wetlands.
