The Georgia Water Coalition's mission is to protect and care for Georgia's surface and groundwater resources, which are essential for sustaining economic prosperity, providing clean and abundant drinking water, preserving diverse aquatic habitats for wildlife and recreation, strengthening property values, and protecting the quality of life for current and future generations.
The following principles define the Georgia Water Coalition's work and its recommendations:
A. The surface waters and groundwater of Georgia are public resources to be managed by the state in the public interest and in a sustainable manner to protect natural systems and meet human and economic needs.
B. Effective water management requires ongoing, rigorous evaluation and planning that is:
(a) transparent and informed by citizen input;
C. Waters shared among all users within a river basin must be apportioned equitably to meet reasonable needs and assure the long-term sustainability of the natural systems on which those water supplies depend.
The members of the Georgia Water Coalition work collaboratively and transparently with other Coalition members to achieve specific goals based on the above principles.
