Georgia Agricultural Water Conservation and Metering Program, 2012
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 2012.
Zero values or percentages indicate 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 total amount of irrigated acres for a given Water Planning Region during 2012 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.
