Water Champions: Former DNR commissioner Joe Tanner, left, and Harold Reheis, former director of Georgia's Environmental Protection Division, along the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta
Water Champions: Former DNR commissioner Joe Tanner, left, and Harold Reheis, former director of Georgia's Environmental Protection Division, along the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta "Georgia was in pretty bad shape, like a lot of the country," says Harold Reheis, former director of Georgia's Environ-mental Protection Division (EPD), who worked 32 years in state government and now works with his old boss, Tanner, at the firm. "I guess there was almost no industrial wastewater treatment here," says Reheis, who in 1969 began his career with the Water Quality Control Board. Nothing like this, though," says Reheis. Strong because of his work ethic: "He was the ultimate workaholic, someone I was never able to outwork, and I tried," says Reheis, who managed water quality control for EPD back then, when Ledbetter was the director. Silent because, according to Reheis, "When he left state government and went into the private sector in 1990, he stopped talking with reporters and other media people, and has abided by that as a strict personal rule ever since. So he is not going to return your calls or emails." The hero because Ledbetter's colleagues say that he was the main reason Georgia got its fair share of the pie at first, then later rewrote the recipe to create a more sustainable funding source. "If I were giving credit, I'd give it to Leonard," Reheis says. Congress reduced the federal proportion of the grants to 55 percent, but even before that, Reheis says, "we realized that the gravy train couldn't go on for long." "We saw a whole lot more need than there was money and saw that Congress was not going to be able to fund these projects at that rate forever," says Jack Dozier, who took over water quality control at EPD when Reheis was its director. Reheis, Dozier and King were there, also, and the whole bunch of them had a hand in changing the mechanism.
"The River Cleanup is one of the most important events in this state," said Harold Reheis, Director of DNR Environmental Protection Division.
