Urban Waters Voices: Darryl Haddock


This video features Darryl Haddock, Environmental Education Director for the West Atlanta Watershed Alliance, describing some of the challenges faced by communities in the watersheds of Proctor, Sandy, and Utoy Creek (e.g. combined sewer overflows, water quality issues, and access to recreational opportunities) and how the organization is using their Outdoor Activity Center to educate and engage residents about these challenges.

The West Atlanta Watershed Alliance (www.wawaonline.org), a community based non-profit organization in Georgia, began as a community struggle for environmental justice and has evolved into an organization that also fosters environmental stewardship. The organization sees its goal as working to improve the quality of life for residents in West Atlanta by protecting, preserving, and restoring the community”s natural resources.
