ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Georgia Water Coalition is seeking nominations for its first-ever Clean 13 report.

They're looking to highlight businesses, local governments, non-profits and individuals that are going 'green' to help protect the state's waterways. 

It's a counterpoint to their Dirty Dozen Report - a list of 12 problems that threaten the health Georgia's waterways. 

In the Dirty Dozen Report in 2015, the organization recognized Department of Transportation for denying a company from building it's petroleum pipeline along the state's coastline, birthing the clean report. 

"A large industry that uses lots and lots of water has done something to reduce their water use or improved the water that they're putting back into our rivers after they use it," said Joe Cook, Coosa River Basin Initiative Coordinator.  

Georgia Water Coalition will be accepting Clean 13 nominations until March 30th. 

Projects chosen will be recognized early 2018.
