Georgia Agricultural Water Conservation and Metering Program, 2011
This web site presents results of a cooperative investigation of agricultural water use in Georgia basins/subbasins (HUC-8s) during 2011.
This web site uses the following terms to describe results of the metering program:
Metered acres: the amount of agricultural acres equipped with water meters and represented in graphs, tables, and illustrations on this web site.
Irrigated acres: the amount of metered acres that received irrigation during 2011.
NS indicates that either (1) metered and irrigated acres are not reported to preserve the anonymity of individual farms or, (2) the number of metered irrigation systems is insufficient for statistical analysis.
The web page does not account for unmetered irrigated acres during the year. The total amount of metered and unmetered irrigated acres for a given Water Planning Region would exceed the number of irrigated acres that have been catalogued by the metering program and represented on this web site.
