2020 Annual Help-the Hooch and Watershed Festival
Columbus Water Works Help The HoochColumbus 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 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.

Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of our volunteers, Keep Columbus Beautiful has decided to offer both virtual and in-person ways of participation for Help-the-Hooch October 2-3, 2020. This year, there will be more than 20 cleanup locations throughout a 100-mile radius.

Registration for Help-the-Hooch is now open! Sign your team up today to help clean the Chattahoochee River.

Here are a few things to consider when registering your team:
  1. There will only be 10 volunteers allowed per location and group
  2. Prior to the event each group must watch the safety guidelines video
  3. Group must wear mask and gloves at all times
  4. Volunteers under 16 years of age must be accompanied and supervised by an adult
