Pendergrast, Craig K.
MetadataShow full item record
The era of apparently abundant water resources in Georgia is over as increasing population places increasing demands on such resources. As overall demand exceeds available supply, conflicts are emerging between competing uses. The competing uses involve domestic, governmental, commercial, agricultural, industrial, electrical, navigational, and natural demands, among others. This paper discusses many of the legal issues which are and will be presented by these competing demands and discusses the legal and regulatory framework and criteria which govern the allocation of Georgia's water resources.
