Although the number of water-related bills considered by the General Assembly during the 1995-1996 legislative term was limited, the ones that did receive action were high profile and controversial. Major bills included ones relating to wastewater discharges in the metropolitan Atlanta region, stream turbidity, and solid waste management. The controversial nature of these bills may serve as a prelude to legislation facing the next term of the General Assembly. Resolution of issues relating to apportioning water with Alabama and Florida, managing coastal ground water, establishing total maximum daily loads of pollutants for streams, and participating in the federal coastal zone management program will fundamentally alter how water is managed in Georgia.
