This paper presents the results for the period 1999 to 2002 from the monitoring program that is estimating agricultural water use across the entire state of Georgia. This program is called AG. WATER PUMPING (Agricultural Water: Potential Use and Management Program in Georgia). Current conflicts on water allocation in the ACT (Alabama, Coosa, and Tallapoosa) and ACF (Apalachicola, Flint, and Chattahoochee) river basins, saltwater intrusion effects in the 24 county area of southeast Georgia, water level declines in the central region, and other potential impacts on water use are all limited by the lack of available information on agricultural water use. This 5-year project is nearing completion. The results for calendar years 2001 and 2002 are based on the complete monitoring site installation whereas previous years were during the installation (incomplete coverage in selected parts of the state).
