Posted on 02/10/2023
In December, Isaac Riley, an eighth grader at Mason Creek Middle School was recognized at the Georgia State Capitol as Douglas County’s winner in the 2022 Annual Metro Water District Middle School Essay Contest. 

The annual essay contest, which is in its 21st year, is one of many educational outreach initiatives conducted by the Metro Water district to raise awareness about conservation efforts and the importance of water quality preservation in the Atlanta region.

For the contest, Riley was tasked with writing a 300-500-word essay on one of two topics assigned by the committee that dealt with water use in the Metro Atlanta area. 

Riley chose to write about the Atlanta Flood of 2009, which brought several days of nonstop rain to the city and surrounding areas in September of that year, and then discussed ways that local businesses around the metro area adapted to the conditions of the weather event.
