Recent USA Today media coverage specifically linking lead levels in drinking water to communities in Georgia has prompted local news coverage across the state that may lead to confusion and unnecessary concern from your elected officials, your customers, and even your staff. To assist you with reaching these critical audiences, GAWP has prepared an information and guidance to help you develop your own communication effort and messages.
Public water suppliers in Georgia have a good story to tell, and the facts should be shared with your community. We hope you find this useful.
Thanks to Kathy Nguyen, Cobb County Water System, and Terry Cole, Burns & McDonnell, who assisted in preparing this guidance.
