GCWA offers this information about concrete steps you can take whether you are a homeowner, business owner, an organizational member, or a governing body.
As a homeowner or resident of the watershed, your individual actions can add up to making a big difference in the water quality of the watershed.
Businesses have a large impact on water quality and quantity in the watershed. Implementing best practices can make that impact a positive one. As a business owner within the watershed, your policies and facilities can make a big difference from managing waste to controling parking lot run off.
Whether you are a member of a home owners association, a resident of a neighborhood in the watershed, or a school club, you can play an important part by spreading information to your members, and joining the GCWA and participating in events as a group.
Our governmental agencies are charged with promulgating rules to govern development of our lands and water resources for the common good, and implementing and maintaining water management practices and infrastructure. Of course, the government works for us, and as citizens we can make our voices heard when these policies are being debated.
