Columbus Water Works is a proud member of this community. We partner with Keep Columbus Beautiful and other organizations to support several programs that enhance our way of life. One of the programs is the Annual Help-the-Hooch and Watershed Festival. This program started 25 years ago as an idea for a clean-up project. The first year, we had over 500 volunteers working to clean up the Chattahoochee River and Riverwalk. This past year we had over 11,000 volunteers and were recognized as the single largest clean-up project in Georgia, encompassing Muscogee County, Harris County, Ft. Benning and Russell County in Alabama. Volunteers in the Chattahoochee Valley area have been working hard to help protect our water, which is the most precious resource we have. 

In recognition of these efforts, a Watershed Festival has been added to the river clean-up eve2019 help the hoochnt. At this festival, groups and companies come and display what they are doing to help protect our community and the environment.

This year’s event will be on Friday, October 4 and Saturday, October 5. Friday’s event will focus on the area’s schools and Ft. Benning. Saturday’s event will focus on community volunteers and the Watershed Festival. The river and waterway clean-up will be on Saturday, October 5th and start at 8:00 am and finish at 11:00 am. The Watershed Festival will be held at Woodruff Park, 100 Bay Avenue, Columbus, GA 31901, Beginning at 11 a.m. and ending at 1 p.m.
