WAWA will use the grant funds to engage low-income West Atlanta residents in water conservation initiatives to help them realize a cost savings for their water bills, and to conduct water quality monitoring, and creek clean-up/watershed restoration projects in some of the poorest and most polluted Atlanta neighborhoods.

WAWA is a community-based non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life within the West Atlanta Watershed by protecting, preserving and restoring the community’s natural resources. WAWA represents African American neighborhoods in Northwest and Southwest Atlanta that are most inundated with environmental stressors, but are often least represented at environmental decision-making tables.

Voting closes at 8:00 pm EST on Sunday, March 20, 2011. But why wait? DO IT NOW! Please pass this on!

Thanks for your help!
