HCP Steering Committee members at the Oct. 6 meeting in Canton for the signing of the
HCP application by Bartow, Cherokee, Paulding and Pickens Counties.

The Etowah Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) strives to enhance the Etowah watershed through protection of aquatic species and water resources, ensuring continued economic prosperity and quality of life for future generations.

The HCP planning process was overseen by a steering committee composed of representatives from each of the counties and municipalities within the watershed. The steering committee is assisted by a team of scientists, policy analysts and educators from the University of Georgia, Kennesaw State University and the Georgia Conservancy, funded by a grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
