The Georgia Environmental Protection Division is actively committed to facilitating effective water conservation planning throughout the state. Bennett Weinstein was hired on as a water conservation specialist during January of 1999, to act as a resource for Georgia's water purveyors. His responsibilities also include reviewing water conservation plans, the development of a water conservation plan training document, as well as facilitating workshops on water conservation planning to teach water suppliers about the training document. The goal of EPD's focus on water conservation is not merely the submittal of water conservation plans, but to have those water conservation measures implemented. The EPD is currently assisting Georgia's water systems in exploring the benefits and cost savings available through the implementation of sound water conservation practices. Water conservation measures are simply tools that promote efficient use, and like any other tool must be used properly in order to be effective.
