      Under this program the state is also developing ground-breaking demonstration projects that address the state’s most challenging water supply issues. The state is funding $10 million for two demonstration projects – an aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) demonstration project in southwest Georgia and a deep well study on th e Georgia coast. Hours of Operation: Monday to Friday a.m. to p.m. PT. Offices are temporarily closed to the public. San Jose Hills District Office E. Garvey Avenue North, Suite A.

      The unique geology of metro Atlanta prevents access to water from below the surface. Stone Mountain is the tip of a thick layer of granite that extends under a large part of our region, significantly limiting the amount of water that comes from the ground. In fact, groundwater makes up only 1% of Atlanta’s total water . Unfortunately, the ground water can become contaminated by human activity. These chemicals can enter the soil and rock, polluting the aquifer and eventually the well. Laws and Regulations. Ground Water Rule: provides for increased protection against microbial pathogens in public water systems that use ground water sources.

      Limestone beds of Eocene, Oligocene, and lower Miocene age, called the principal artesian aquifer, are the chief source of ground water for Colquitt County. Because streams are small, undependable and relatively inaccessible to most users, ground water is the most important source for increased industrial and agricultural water use. Southeast of Moultrie the principal artesian aquifer is very. Groundwater is the leading international journal focused exclusively on groundwater. Since , it has published a dynamic mix of papers on topics including groundwater flow and well hydraulics, hydrogeochemistry and contaminant hydrogeology, application of geophysics, groundwater management and policy, and history of groundwater hydrology.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Wait, Robert L. (Robert Lyle), Source and quality of ground water in southwestern Georgia. Atlanta, The Upper Cretaceous rocks are used as a source of ground water in a wide area in southwestern Georgia, beginning at the Fall Line, extending as far south as Blakely in Early County, and extending eastward as far as Americus in Swnter County, where some of the new city wells File Size: 2MB.

Groundwater-level and groundwater-quality data are essential for water-resources assessment and management. Water-level measurements from observation wells are the principal source of information about the hydrologic stresses on aquifers and how these stresses affect groundwater. GEORGIA Ground-Water Quality Ground water in Georgia is of good quality and is suitable for most uses.

It provides drinking water to more than million people, or almost one-half the total population of the State (fig. About one-third of the million people are supplied byCited by: 3. The Ground-Water database contains ground-water site inventory, ground-water level data, and water-quality data.

The ground-water site inventory consists of more thanrecords of wells, springs, test holes, tunnels,drains, and excavations in the United States. Available site descriptive information includes well location information (latitude and longitude, well depth, site use, water.

inches (Map 3). Water supply sources in Georgia also vary by region but are much more a function of differences in the underlying hydrogeology than in regional climate. The southern regions of the state located below the Fall Line obtain most of their supply from productive carbonate aquifers that contain high-quality groundwater.

About 10 million people rely on groundwater from the Upper Floridan and surficial aquifers for drinking water. The Upper Floridan aquifer also is of primary importance to the region as a source of water for irrigation and as a source of crystal clear water that discharges.

The people of Southwest Georgia are blessed with abundant crystal clear ground water. Albany has attracted many large industries based upon the availability of clean water. Albany Utilities' primary source of water supply for the Albany service area is 32 separate but interconnected ground water wells.

Groundwater supplies 50% of drinking water worldwide, but compromised water quality from anthropogenic and geogenic contaminants can limit usage of groundwater as a drinking water source. Groundwater quality in the glacial aquifer system, USA (GLAC), is presented in the context of a hydrogeologic framework that divides the study area into Since the introduction of center-pivot irrigation systems aroundthe Upper Floridan aquifer has been widely used as the primary water source for irrigation in southwestern Georgia (Hicks and other, ).

The Albany/Dougherty County area is informally separated from the rest of the southwestern hydrologic area for discussion of water levels. An aquifer is a geologic formation, a group of formations, or a part of a formation that contains sufficient saturated permeable material to yield significant quantities of water to groundwater wells and springs.

An example of a significant and sustainable carbonate aquifer is the Edwards Aquifer in central carbonate aquifer has historically been providing high quality water for. Watershed Dams, Water Supply, and Water Resources & Land Use Planning GSWCC Watershed and Water Resources Programs provide research, funding and technical expertise on Georgia's water supplies, dams, and river basins.

To protect and restore the state's water quality, GSWCC analyzes key watersheds and identifies opportunities to assist river basin stakeholders and all of Georgia in water. A ground-water-level network has been established throughout most of the State of Georgia, and ground-water-quality networks have been established in the cities of Albany, Savannah, and Brunswick and in Camden County, Georgia.

Ground-water levels are monitored continuously in a network of wells completed in major aquifers of the State. USGS Water Resources Discipline office in Georgia. Sum-maries of selected ground-water studies with objectives and progress are presented, together with selected techni-cal highlights.

These summaries and highlights include: • Ground-water-level and ground-water-quality conditions in Georgia. the Eastern Virginia Ground Water Management Area was expanded after to include the northern portion of the Coastal Plain (north of red line) Source: Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), Ground Water Withdrawal Permitting Program.

The intent of the permitting program was to prevent conflicts between existing and new users. The Georgia Soil & Water Conservation Commission's Interactive Mapping Experience provides a large amount of information on water and conservation in Georgia.

Year Published: The quality of our Nation's waters: Water quality in principal aquifers of the United States, About million people in the United States rely on groundwater for drinking water, and the need for high-quality drinking-water supplies becomes more urgent as our population grows.• Rules.

Georgia protects its groundwater resources through several regulatory programs, including the following: groundwater use permits under Georgia's Groundwater Use Act; municipal drinking water permits; wellhead protection programs; surface water discharge permits; and a vulnerability assessment program to determine pollution of private wells in the state.The Region 9 Water Division is responsible for providing clean and safe surface water, ground water, and drinking water and protecting and restoring aquatic ecosystems in the Pacific Southwest.

We oversee state and tribal implementation of core programs to accomplish these goals.
