      In Georgia, over 600 stream segments are scheduled for TMDL development due designated use. Seventy-seven stream segments are listed for excessive sediment. The state does not have quantitative standards for the regulation ...
    • Legal issues surrounding stream flow in Georgia 

      Howett, Ciannat M.; Rogers, Gilbert B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Ecology, The University of Georgia, 2005-04)
      Georgia has been operating under an interim instream flow protection policy since May 2001. This paper explores other federal and state statutes and regulations that implicate stream flow along with selected court cases. ...
    • Local utility and industries partner to achieve phosphorus reduction 

      Allen, John C. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Ecology, The University of Georgia, 2005-04)
      The cooperative efforts of the Pollution Prevention Assistance Division (P2AD), Dalton Utilities and Dalton businesses resulted in a 50% reduction in wastewater phosphorus levels, the avoidance of an estimated $30 million ...
