Source Water Assessment in Georgia
Fuller, Wayne R.
MetadataShow full item record
Georgia's Source Water Assessment and Protection Implementation Plan (Implementation Plan) was approved by Region IV of the U.S. EPA in May 2000. Upon approval of the Georgia Implementation Plan, all public drinking water systems in Georgia are required to have a Source Water Assessment Plan (SWAP). Preparations of SWAPs are a critical technical issue for Georgia's public water systems. To assist drinking water systems with this formidable task, EPD is utilizing the successful efforts of other EPD environmental initiatives, as well as implementing new initiatives designed to aid both surface water and ground water users. Successfully established EPD environmental initiatives include WellHead Protection and Monitoring Waivers. More recent environmental initiatives include definitions of the State's river basins and intake specific watersheds, funding availability through partnering contracts and strategy development for water wells with critical data needs. Additional initiatives will be developed as Source Water Assessment approaches its critical compliance date.
