Monitoring and Information Management
For ongoing assessment of the state’s water resources, Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) has and is further developing a comprehensive monitoring program and a well-coordinated, computer/web based system for information management. EPD and its contractors are compiling existing data, coordinating and integrating governmental and voluntary water monitoring programs, identifing information gaps and developing a program to fill those gaps.
