Summary

The purpose of the Georgia Groundwater Use Act is to establish procedures to be followed to obtain a permit to withdraw, obtain or utilize groundwater and for the submission of information concerning the amount of grand water withdrawal, its intended use, and the proposed aquifer or aquifers of withdrawal to the Environmental Protection Division (EPD). Groundwater withdrawals of greater than 100,000 gallons per day require a permit from the EPD. Permit applications that request an increase in water usage must also submit a water conservation plan approved by the Director of the EPD.
