Mission: The Upper Oconee Watershed is dedicated to protecting water resources and improving stream health in our watershed through community-based advocacy, monitoring, education, amd recreation.

UOWN is dedicated to promoting citizen awareness of local water resource issues and advocating sound watershed management practices.

We seek opportunities to use our monitoring data to influence water resource policy and local land use decisions, including:

- Compiling data summary reports
- Meeting with regulatory officials concerning problem sites
- Commenting on proposed water source legislation
- Submitting newspaper articles and letters






Please join the UOWN discussion group to receive updates about all of our upcoming activities.
