Monitoring and Information Management
For ongoing assessment of the state’s water resources, Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) is developing a comprehensive monitoring program and a well-coordinated, computer/web based system for information management. To develop the comprehensive monitoring program, EPD and its contractors are compiling existing data, coordinating and integrating governmental and voluntary water monitoring programs, identifing information gaps and developing a program to fill those gaps.
USGS Water Resources Information and Data for Georgia
This Web site provides access to the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) network of surface-water, ground-water, and water-quality monitoring sites for real-time and historical hydrologic data. This data was used as the starting point for the resource assessments being provided to the regional water planning councils.
