Water Action Group
The Transition Asheville Water Action Group promotes resilient sustainable water usage in the Asheville - Katuah bioregion. We recognize that water is an essential resource for agriculture, industry, and maintaining human health. We will educate the public to develop skills to be resilient through droughts and floods, and to make sustainable choices that reduce erosion, contamination, and increase ground water retention. We will network with local organizations and government agencies. KEEP TRACK OF OUR Blog AND Calendar TO KNOW WHAT WE ARE UP TO!
- Educate our community how to increase ground water retention and harvest rainwater to support gardens and agriculture and increase drought resilience.
- Support projects that harvest rainwater and retain ground water for food, gardens and educational purposes.
- Educate our community how to reduce the impact of rapid run-off such as erosion and stream contamination.
