Coweta County Water Education Team

Newnan Utilities Conducts Field Trips For Local Schools

The Coweta County Water Education Team (CWET) formed in January 2008 in an effort to join forces among the many Coweta County organizations already engaged in public education regarding water conservation and water quality. With increased population growth and ongoing drought, Coweta County, like much of Georgia, faced water restrictions. CWET focuses on training Coweta County teachers so that they may educate their students about the importance of water conservation and water quality. Students are encouraged to model conservation behaviors at school and home, which are effective ways to increase water conservation throughout the county. Educator’s Workshops are hosted by CWET each year and have trained more than 100 teachers since 2008.

Mission Statement: To utilize community partnerships to provide Coweta County citizens a comprehensive water education program including water quality and conservation.

Goal: To educate Coweta County citizens regarding the importance of water quality and conservation.
