EPD Water Assessments Out

Officials with the Georgia Environmental Protection Division are crisscrossing the state to share data with regional water councils.

Over the next two weeks, EPD officials will report on Georgia's water supply and quality. The data will guide regional water councils as they study long-range water management plans for their respective river basins this year.

In Augusta on Tuesday, the EPD will present findings on the Upper Floridan Aquifer -- the state's largest supply of groundwater -- as well as the Savannah and Ogeechee river basins.

The first meeting was held on Friday in Americus, where officials reported on the Flint and Ochlockonee river basins, and the Dougherty Plain and Claiborne aquifers. The last, in Columbus on February 1, will focus on the Chattahoochee River and the Piedmont aquifer.
