Regional Water Planning

The 2004 Comprehensive State-wide Water Management Planning Act outlined a vision for water resource management in the state: "Georgia manages water resources in a sustainable manner to support the state’s economy, to protect public health and natural systems, and to enhance the quality of life for all citizens" The Act also identified and charged each of the ten water planning regions with developing plans that provided management practices to ensure water quantity and quality.

The Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District was created by the Georgia General Assembly in 2001, and it has worked to develop comprehensive regional water plans for the 15 county metro area that, among other things, protect water quality and supply. The video below highlights a few of the District's successes.
