dc.descriptionProceedings of the 2003 Georgia Water Resources Conference, held April 23-24, 2003, at the University of Georgia.en_US
dc.description.abstractThe reports issued by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) in 1996-1997 about salt water intrusion into the Upper Floridan Aquifer and about requirements for water management plans led to a series of numerous research and planning activities. Among those was research carried out in 1997-1998 in Glynn and McIntosh counties on public perception and knowledge about current water issues. The research consisted of intensive interviews with selected individuals and a mail questionnaire to randomly selected coastal residents. The results of the research, originally reported solely in terms of raw scores and percentages, are re-presented here as information to construct cultural models, which allow for differentiation of survey results in relation to socioeconomic categories. Communities that are the least developed economically are more concerned about development than water conservation. The reverse is also the case.en_US
