Surface Water Availability Resource Assessment in Georgia State Water Plan Efforts – Lessons Learned
Over the past two and half years, Georgia’s surface water resources assessment team devoted a tremendous amount of effort in developing unimpaired flow data, water resources modeling tools, and approaches in assessing available resources for the State Water Planning process. Georgia’s surface water resource assessment team includes Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) and its major surface water resource assessment contractors, ARCADIS, Riverside Technology, and Georgia Water Resources Institute. Much has been done and learned through the process resource assessment as well as data and tool preparation. We would like to share the experiences with our peers and seek improvements in the next round of work.
