On June 28, 2002 Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin announced the formation of a panel of experts to advise the city on Atlanta’s$1 billion combined sewer overflow plan. The Mayor’s “Clean Water Advisory Panel,” chaired by Dr. Wayne Clough, President of the Georgia Institute of Technology and a respected civil engineer, conducted a comprehensive technical review of the City’s plan to ensure that it is in the best long-term interest of the City.,

In announcing the committee Mayor Franklin said, “In solving its CSO problems, the City must make decisions that will fundamentally affect its water quality, economic growth and financial stability for generations to come. I want the best advice possible as we make these critical decisions. Through Dr. Clough’s committee, I know I will get that.”

The nine-member panel of experts was personally selected by Dr. Clough to ensure both technical expertise and independence. All members of the Panel are nationally known experts in the fields of civil engineering, wastewater treatment or public health. Many have extensive experience in developing CSO plans for other large cities.
