Water Supply and Conservation Plan
Water conservation is a critical element in meeting the water supply needs within the Metro Water District, today and in the future. The Water Supply and Water Conservation Management Plan is instrumental in making water conservation a priority in north Georgia. It details strategies for intensive water demand management and aggressive water conservation in our region.
Since the adoption of the 2003 Water Supply and Water Conservation Management Plan, total water use has dropped by more than 10 percent despite a 1.3 million increase in population. In fact, Metro Atlanta’s regional per capita water use is lower in Metro Atlanta than in Tallahassee, Tampa, Birmingham and Montgomery.
