Metro Atlanta is home to many beautiful water features including Lake Lanier, Allatoona Lake and the Chattahoochee, Flint, Yellow and Etowah Rivers. These lakes and rivers provide Metro Atlantans with more than just recreational and photo opportunities; they also serve as valuable resources for our region's water supply! As good stewards of our natural environment, it is imperative that we protect our water supply from point source and nonpoint source pollution and conserve whenever we can.
Each year, the Metro Water District holds a photography contest to promote awareness of the need to protect our shared water resources.
