“We don’t always think in terms of the environment’
Throughout his tenure as the 82nd Governor of Georgia, Nathan Deal has protected Georgia’s environment for both its ecological and economic worth. He understands that the state’s natural resources support agriculture, tourism, jobs, and businesses alike. Governor Deal is committed to bringing new water supplies online in preparation for Georgia’s growing population and the potential for future droughts. Georgia has already pledged $300 million to begin state direct investment in water supply projects throughout the state. In addition, Governor Deal has promoted water conservation efforts and will continue to protect Georgia’s water from outside entities.
