MetadataShow full item record
In 2001, the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District (Metro Water District) was established by the Georgia Legislature to establish policy, provide guidance, and create plans to promote the intergovernmental coordination of water issues within the region. The Metro Water District includes 15 counties as well as 92 municipalities that participate in a framework for integrated water resource planning . Because water conservation is a critical component in meeting future water needs, the Water Supply and Water Conservation Management Plan was developed to provide specific strategies and recommendations for managing and preserving the resource within and downstream of the region. The measures contained within this plan promote a balanced water savings strategy that aim to meet the needs and water use patterns across various user sectors with the Metropolitan Atlanta area. This paper will explore the Metro Water District's Water Supply and Water Conservation Plan and discuss its impact over the past ten years.
