Water – In the wake of Harvey and Irma, water has dominated national news.  Part of this news has been the intersection of water with economic development and land use, as well as planning and regulation.  Closer to home, recurring topics have included “water wars” with our neighboring states, watering restrictions, and proposed new reservoirs.  With projected growth of an additional need for water to serve a 15-county metropolitan area that is projected to increase between 2015 and 2040 by 2.2 million people, we know with certainty that water is a critical resource for our future growth and resilience.

The Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District, part of the ARC, recently released a comprehensive Water Resource Management Plan to address the region’s water resources and its water, wastewater, and watershed management infrastructure.

Join us on Wednesday, October 11th for a conversation with Katherine Zitsch. She will discuss the water needs of our region, the status of the various water lawsuits and the outlook for the adoption of policies and practices for sustainable resources.

Cost: $10

This lunch is limited to 40 guests.
