Water planning group seeks council members from Hall, five other counties

By Staff
ATLANTA - The Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District (Metro Water District) is seeking interested residents from Clayton, Coweta, Fayette, Forsyth, Gwinnett and Hall counties to serve on their respective Basin Advisory Council.

The councils help develop and implement water resources plans for the region, providing input to the Metro Water District's planning process and related implementation activities.

The organization encourages interested citizens to apply as well as persons who represent recreation, civic, development, urban agriculture, media, academic, power and natural gas and other interests.

Individuals must reside within the river basin of the council for which they apply. Members serve two-year terms and may be reappointed for additional terms. Councils hold regular quarterly meetings but may also hold special meetings as needed to provide input on Metro Water District activities and actions.

The application for Basin Advisory Council membership is available on the Metro Water District's Web site. The deadline to apply is April 30.

For more information, contact the Metro Water District by telephone or e-mail at 404.463.3344 or comments@northgeorgiawater.com.
