dc.description.abstractThe water resources of the Flint River Basin, its tributaries, and the aquifers of the middle and lower subbasins are vitally important to agriculture, industries, and municipalities of southwest Georgia. Population growth and expansion of irrigated agriculture since the 1970s have resulted in increased water use in the Flint River Basin. There is uncertainty as to whether, during periods of drought and lower than average rainfall, flows in the Flint River will be sufficient to meet the growing municipal, industrial, and agricultural demands, while maintaining an ecologically healthy environment. Characterization and monitoring of surface- and ground-water resources, their interconnection, and water quality are important for proper management and development of water resources in this area.en_US
