dc.description.abstractThe Flint River Regional Water Development and Conservation Plan (the Plan) was initiated by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) in October 1999 in response to growing concern over agricultural irrigation in southwest Georgia. Computer models of stream-aquifer relations and surface water flows indicated that, under conditions of extreme drought and greatly increased irrigation the Flint River and some of its tributaries could either stop flowing or become influent. The Plan included a moratorium on the issuance of new farm use permits form the Floridan aquifer in southwest Georgia; however, the Plan also called for extensive scientific study of stream-aquifer relations and agricultural water use, and the creation of an Advisory Committee to assist EPD in crafting the Plan. These efforts are all nearing completion, and will result in a resource management plan strongly founded in cutting-edge science and extensive stakeholder participation.en_US
