Water conservation in Georgia: who’s doing what and where do we go from here?
The purpose of this paper is to show that, regarding water conservation, there is quite a lot happening in Georgia. Coordination of all of these efforts is needed, which is the main objective of the newly formed Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Water Conservation Program. This paper discusses not only water conservation planning at a statewide level, but also some of the many educational and measurable results programs taking place at this time by all water use sectors: residential, business and commercial, institutional, industrial and agricultural. Recommendations for future action are also given. A list of web sites is given for those wishing to conduct more extensive research into this topic.
