The ten (10) Regional Water Planning Councils have finalized updated Regional Water Plans that have been adopted by the EPD Director.
Georgia’s 2008 State Water Plan calls for on-going water planning that incorporates local and regional perspectives to ensure that the state’s water resources are sustainably managed. Ten (10) Regional Water Planning Councils were established in 2009 and completed initial Regional Water Plans in 2011. The State Water Plan calls for the Councils to review the Regional Water Plans every five years. The Councils began a review and revision process in 2020 that resulted in the updated 2023 Regional Water Plans.
