Stephen E. Draper, an attorney in the Atlanta area, leads the Draper Group, which seeks to advise on effective management and protection of water resources in Georgia. As a water policy advisor to the governor, Draper was responsible for analysis of statewide water resources and uses in Georgia, the development and implementation of programs for public dialogue on water issues, and the development of proposed policies and regulations. He has served the state in a number of capacities as a representative to the Joint Comprehensive Water Plan Study Committee, member of the Clean Water Initiative, and chair of the Georgia Water Advisory Council.
