The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GAEPD) of the Department of Natural Resources has adopted a watershed protection approach to water resources management. This approach, referred to as river basin management planning, is an integrated holistic approach focusing on water resources related activities within a watershed. GAEPD is currently developing the river basin management planning program and implementing it in the Chattahoochee, Flint, Coosa, and Oconee River basins. Basin management plans for other river basins in the State are also scheduled for development. River basin management planning is not a new regulatory program, but represents a new approach to water resources management for the State of Georgia.
