Attend a District Meeting


The District meets at 6:30 pm the third Wednesday of the month with local governments, citizens, GSWCC, and NRCS.  If you would like more information on an upcoming meeting's agenda or location, click here to contact us.

Get Outside!


Play in the creek, go on a nature walk, go fishing! Enjoy the outdoors.  Being outdoors helps remind us that we are all stewards of the environment.    

Volunteer


There are numerous groups in the metro-Atlanta area who are dedicated to the conservation of our soil and water resources.  Whether it's cleaning up your neighborhood stream, taking part in an Adopt-a-Stream event, or decorating rain barrels with local middle school students, it all helps.  

Plant a Garden


Either a vegetable or a Rain Garden will have positive effects on your local watershed and can  save you money!  If you don't have room or ample sunlight in your yard, join or start a community garden.

Keep an eye out!


If you see an Erosion Control violation, REPORT it.  Violations include tracking mud into the street, silt fence in need of repair, unstable slopes, or illegal work inside a stream buffer.  Click here for a list of contacts who are responsible for responding to erosion complaints.  If you are not satisfied with the results, let us know.  It takes the help of everyone in a community to protect our soil and water resources.
