To access HCWA reservoirs, citizens must sign a waiver and obtain a Reservoir Use Permit, which is available at the HCWA headquarters during office hours for any HCWA customer, Henry County resident or property owner. These Permits are valid for one calendar year from the date of purchase, and they allow for a guest to accompany you for free.


The HCWA Reservoir Use Permits provide access to the Tussahaw and Upper Towaliga not only for fishing (for those with Georgia fishing licenses), but for canoeing, kayaking, and boating with non-gaspowered (trolling) motors.
