Katie Sheehan, Senior Legal Fellow

Katie Sheehan is the Senior Legal Fellow at the River Basin Center. Her work primarily focuses on developing legal and policy solutions to water quality and quantity issues faced by local governments. Katie has developed model ordinances for wetlands protection and conservation subdivisions, conducted community code reviews and revisions to promote low impact development, cataloged green building practices in southeastern communities, and worked on a variety of small projects for local governments and state agencies related to water resources. She is currently developing guidebooks for local management of onsite wastewater treatment systems, local protection of wetlands, and appropriate property tax valuation of properties encumbered by a conservation easement. Katie is currently a member of the Athens-Clarke County Oconee Rivers Greenway Commission, serves on the Board of Directors of the Georgia Land Conservation Center, and is the At-Large Member of the State Bar of Georgia's Environmental Law Section. Her interests include running, kayaking, and fishing. Katie received her J.D. cum laude from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2008.
