Georgia Water Facts

Surface water is the primary source of water (78%) in the northern one-half of the State, including the Atlanta metropolitan area, where limited ground-water resources are difficult to obtain. In Georgia, periodic droughts exacerbate competition for surface-water supplies. (Source USGS Fact Sheet 2008-3075)
