waterSmart is a water conservation education program initiated by the Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority (CCMWA) in 2000. In 2005 Cobb County Water System became a partner in the waterSmart program to ensure residents had access to conservation information and materials. The programs and materials created through the waterSmart education program are available to all CCMWA’s wholesale customers and the citizens they serve. The waterSmart program sponsors three competitions each year to give students at all grade levels an opportunity to learn about water conservation and the value of water. Contests sponsored are a 4th and 5th grade coloring book art contest, calendar art contest, and photography contest. Through the distribution of the contest materials, children are able to learn water conservation methods in an age appropriate way.
