Vision and Goals: Coosa North Georgia


Enhance the quality of life for all communities through sustainable use of water resources while supporting natural systems in the region and state with partnerships among a broad spectrum of stakeholders. 


  1. Plan for appropriate levels of water storage, water sources, and long-term supply to meet anticipated need for local communities. 

  2. Minimize adverse impacts to local communities and adjacent regions, and, when practicable, enhance natural systems.  

  3. Ensure that management practices support economic development and optimize existing water and wastewater infrastructure. 

  4. Promote technologies that conserve, return, and recycle water; protect water quality; and ensure adequate capacity for water storage within the Region. 

  5. Promote properly managed wastewater discharges. 

  6. Educate stakeholders in the Region on the importance of water resources, including water conservation, efficiency, pollution prevention, and source water protection. 

  7. Identify practices that reduce nonpoint source pollution while controlling stormwater to protect and enhance water quality and ecosystems, particularly those in priority watersheds and listed streams.  

  8. Develop an ongoing adaptive management approach to measure, share, and evaluate water use data and information.
