Water Use in Georgia by County for 1995
Georgia Geologic Survey Information Circular 101, 95 pages

ABSTRACT

Nora Mills dam and raceway at the Chattahoochee River near Canoochee, Georgia. This grist mill was established in 1876.Water use during 1995 was estimated for each county in Georgia by water-use category, using data obtained from various Federal and State agencies. Categories of offstream water use include public supply, domestic, commercial, industrial, mining, irrigation, livestock, and thermoelectric power; and instream use includes hydroelectric power generation.

Total offstream water use from ground- and surface-water sources was estimated to be 5,800 million gallons per day in 1995. More water was withdrawn for thermoelectric-power use than for any other category. Withdrawals for irrigation mostly were from ground-water sources, and withdrawals for public supply mostly were from surface-water sources. Instream water use for hydroelectric plants in the State was estimated to be 51,000 million gallons per day.
