This paper summarizes the alternative water supply analysis performed as part of EPD's Sound Science Initiative for the 24-county coastal region of Georgia. The work included assessing surface water supplies, off-main stem surface water impoundments, and wastewater effluent reuse as sources of water in the 24-county area These were evaluated as alternative water supplies to offset current Upper Floridan Aquifer withdrawals and to help alleviate the saltwater intrusion problem at Hilton Head, South Carolina and Brunswick, Georgia. The presentation will describe the evaluation process, which included using ArcView, a geographic information system (GIS) developed by ESRI, to help analyze the data and rank the alternatives.
