dc.description.abstractThe Environmental Planning Criteria Database keeps records on those jurisdictions that have had comprehensive plans approved by the Department of Community Affairs (DCA). The database lists the recommended protection measures, as outlined in the Environmental Planning Criteria (Georgia Department of Natural Resources), that the jurisdictions have committed to implement at some point in order to address environmental resource protection. The results of the database show that only 18 % of all jurisdictions with water supply watersheds, 19% of jurisdictions with groundwater recharge areas and just 9% of those with river corridors have stated that they would implement all of the recommended protection measures. The numbers are larger for those jurisdictions choosing to implement some portion of the measures: 51% of those with water supply watersheds, 38% with groundwater recharge areas, and 65% with river corridors. 10% of those jurisdictions with water supply watersheds, 14% with groundwater recharge areas, and 10% with river corridors have stated that they intend to implement none of the recommended protection measures.en_US
