Georgia Agricultural Water Conservation and Metering Program, 2011

Water Planning Region Information

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.

The total amount of irrigated acres for a given Water Planning Region during 2011 would include nonmetered irrigated acres as well as metered irrigated acres. This web site does not account for nonmetered irrigated acres. Therefore, the total amount of irrigated acres for a given Water Planning Region would exceed the number of metered irrigated acres represented on this web site.

WPR pie charts: percent metered irrigated acres, and percent metered irrigation usage.
