The Agricultural Water Conservation Initiative was created to assist agricultural water users in quantifying water use, conserving existing water use through irrigation audits, and reducing dependence on ground water and surface water supplies through agricultural water catchments. Our ultimate goal is to conserve Georgia's ground water and surface water depletion by agricultural water users. We do this by helping producers to increase the uniformity and efficiency of their irrigation systems, obtaining and managing quality data on agricultural water use for state policy makers, and constructing and renovating agricultural water catchments for irrigation of cropland in South Georgia using federal funds through our Ponds Program.
The USGS Georgia Water Science Center has made available "Water Resources Data for Georgia" annual reports. These reports compile all streamflow, groundwater, and water-quality data collected by the USGS throughout the State of Georgia. To access the interactive mapper function for Water Resources Data for Georgia go to this USGS link. This interactive map displays various USGS monitoring sites from which users may gather current and historical data.
