Georgia has been blessed historically with an abundance of water, but is quickly becoming familiar with water scarcity problems. Exploding growth and development in the north and increasing irrigation needs in the south are causing demand for water to increase.
“Every Drop Counts: Managing Georgia’s Water Supply,” the annual exhibit from the Stephen Elliott Draper Center and Archives for the Study of Water Law and Policy, guides you through the many challenges facing Georgia’s water policy, how it is implemented today, and possibilities for the future. Items on display include a rainwater barrel, fire hydrant, local water samples, photos, maps, and illustrations.
The exhibit is on display Sept. 17 through Dec. 16 at the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript gallery of the Russell Building Special Collections Libraries. An opening reception celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Draper Center will be held Sept. 17 at 1 p.m. Please call 706-542-7123 for additional information.
