Last month the Equitable Water Future Atlanta Roadmap was officially released! It is the product of three years of committed collaboration between the City of Atlanta Department of Watershed Management, US Water Alliance, Partnership for Southern Equity, West Atlanta Watershed Alliance, Eco-Action, The Conservation Fund, and American Rivers; all members of the Atlanta Water Equity Task Force.
This is the first-ever report on strategies to build water equity in the city! To address challenges and advance water equity in Atlanta, this Water Equity Roadmap identifies transformative opportunities for policies and practices in four areas of work: equitable decision-making, affordability, workforce development, and climate resilience. This is a critical first step in advancing water equity in Atlanta, and WAWA will continue to collaborate with the City and other partners to ensure its implementation.
