This paper presents the results of the 1995 survey of Georgia's public water systems. The survey was completed by 313 of the 527 public water systems in the state. The survey included questions about connections, capacity, peak demand, water source, average daily water use, revenues, rates, facilities, capital expenditure plans, employees, and conservation programs. Information on water pricing in Georgia was an important part of the survey. The results showed that 59% of the systems use a uniform pricing structure, 26% use a declining block rate, 8% an increasing rate and 5% a flat fee. The average water bill for 10,000 gallons to a residential customer was $19.46 - ranging from zero to $43.16.
