Alternative Water Supply Plan for Screven County
MetadataShow full item record
Screven County recognizes that an essential element in maintaining quality of life for citizens is an adequate potable water supply. A dependable water supply protects the public health and encourages economic development. Water supply facilities must be reliable, efficient, and have adequate capacity to support the anticipated future growth of the community. This paper summarizes the background research and findings pertaining to the existing economic and demographic conditions and discusses potential water supply options, which could be implemented to address needs of the unincorporated County. The findings of the study advocate that Screven County consider the development of a water supply system that is composed of shared or community wells that would be owned and maintained by the County. This type of system would be economically viable in a rural area, and would also provide for the same regulation and monitoring of water supply and water use as a traditional community system.
