Forecasts of water and wastewater demands, along with the resource assessments, form the basis for water planning in Georgia. The State Water Plan requires the preparation of water and wastewater demand forecasts for the following water use sectors: Municipal, Industrial, Agricultural, and Energy. The Councils received draft forecasts developed in 10 year increments through 2060 for consideration and use in management practice selection.

Municipal, Industrial, Agricultural, and Energy Forecasting Methods Reports were completed independently of one another. The Georgia Water Planning Forecast Dashboard presents an aggregated forecast of projected water and wastewater demands from all ten councils, excluding Metro District. 

Please note the dashboard reflects industrial water use supplied by a municipality in the municipal forecasting sector.
