As part of the National Water-Quality Assessment Program (NAWQA) (Leahy et. al., 1990; Gilliom et. al., 1995), the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is evaluating water-quality conditions in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF) River basin in Georgia, Alabama, and Florida during 1993-95. Urban and suburban land-use effects on regional surface- and Found-water chemistry is one focus of the NAWQA ACF River basin study. Historically, the focus of water-quality studies within the vicinity of Metropolitan Atlanta primarily has been on surface water because surface water has supplied about 98 percent of the water used in the area (Marella et. al., 1993). However, evaluating the quality of ground water in the vicinity of Metropolitan Atlanta is useful (1) to determine the usability of ground water as a supplemental water supply; (2) to better understand water quality in streams, especially during baseflow conditions; and (3) when compared with surface-water-quality data, to provide qualitative information about the interaction between ground and surface waters and on the pathways of travel for various chemical constituents.
