July 2021 - December 2021

Though it is a basic necessity, a complex web of connections complicates drinking water's journey from its origin to your glass. Drinkable Water in Georgia examines the complex relationships and interconnections between science, technology, policy, and industry that have shaped the current state of drinkable water in Georgia. 

Discover where our drinking water comes from and at what cost to others. Explore what it takes for Americans to access clean and safe drinking water and if government intervention can solve future issues surrounding water and other shared resources.

This exhibit, made possible with funding and support from the Stephen E. Draper Center & Archives for the Study of Water Law and Policy, opens July 2021 at the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library Gallery in the Richard B. Russell Special Collections Libraries Building.
