The Office of the Commissioner is seeking candidates for the Consent Decree Program Director. The Clean Water Atlanta (CWA) Consent Decree Program is a comprehensive, multi-program initiative designed to improve water quality in Atlanta through capital construction programs and enhanced operation of the City’s drinking and wastewater systems.
