The 11th Annual Watershed Gala and Holman Water Quality Stewardship Award presentation were held on February 28, 2019. The Watershed Gala is an annual event to celebrate good water quality still being measured in many rivers, lakes and streams across the upper Hiwassee River watershed and to recognize those who work to sustain it. The event is also the Hiwassee River Watershed Coalition’s largest fundraiser. We hope you will join us in February 2020 for a delightful evening of food, laughter, and fun and to help honor the 2020 Holman Water Quality Stewardship Award winner!
