Gordon County

County Water Plan Information

The Regional Water Plan compares water demand and wastewater flow forecasts, along with Resource Assessments, per county and provides the basis for selecting management practices in the CNG Region. Areas where future demands are predicted to exceed the capacity of the resource for groundwater, surface water availability, or surface water quality (assimilative capacity) have a potential gap, need, or shortage that will be addressed through the management practices described in the Plan. This page summarizes the potential gaps, needs, or shortages, also referred to as water resource management issues, for the county.

Table 5-6 summarizes potential needs or shortages in Gordon County and other counties in the Coosa-North Georgia Region.

Gordon County is predicted to have potential gaps in water quality assimilative capacity. Figure 5.2 shows that some portions of Salacoa Creek exceed its assimilative capacity. See Section 5 of the Download this pdf file.Regional Water Plan for more information on each county's water resource capacities and future needs.
