A Citizen’s Guide to Fights Small Dams


November 8, 2000  


Georgia River Network has posted on their website a manual to aid citizen groups who wish to use legal and political means to fight the construction of small dams in Georgia. The manual is practical for use by citizen groups in Tennessee as well.  By small dams, we are referring to municipal, water supply and industrial dams that are permitted under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. This manual walks you through the process of researching and understanding a proposed dam, building an opposition strategy, becoming a voice in the permitting process, and making your voice heard. It does not address strategies appropriate for fighting agricultural, hydropower or federal dams; the laws, permits, regulations and strategies governing these dams are different.

The manual can be found at:  http://www.garivers.org/dammanual/
