Impacts and Achievements
Since plan implementation, total water withdrawals in the region have dropped by 10 percent despite a one million increase in population. Our region’s per capita water use is lower than in Tallahassee, Birmingham and Montgomery.
Water quality and supply is dependent on policy, infrastructure and management. Our comprehensive approach to managing water for economic, environmental and social well-being is based on science, data and good stewardship. Regional water planning success relies on coordination and collaboration with the local governments and utilities that put Metro Water District planning into practice.
Through the implementation of strategies and recommendations outlined by the Metro Water District, we are making water conservation and pollution prevention a priority in north Georgia.
