Passport to Your Watershed
Abstract:Many areas across the country are facing rapid growth and the special challenges such growth brings. Rockdale County, Georgia, is no exception. By 2020 the county's population is expected to more than double. Rockdale County is faced with the challenge of providing adequate supplies of drinking water and wastewater treatment capacity while maintaining the quality of its streams and minimizing flooding. To balance these objectives and guide growth in an sustainable manner, the county is developing a watershed management plan. One of the most important steps in the development of the plan is keeping the public well informed and encouraging them to take an active role in the development of the plan.
