Georgia Water-Use Program, 2006

June 12, 2006

The Georgia Water-Use Program was initiated during 1979, as a cooperative effort between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GaEPD). This ongoing program focuses on collecting, compiling, and disseminating water-use information for the State (Fanning, 2003). These data are stored in a central database, which is maintained by the USGS. Every 5 years, data are aggregated at the county, State, and national level and are published in State and national circulars.
