Georgia Agricultural Water Conservation and Metering Program, 2010

This web site presents results of a cooperative investigation of agricultural water use in the middle-and-lower Chattahoochee and Flint River basin and its subbasins and a summary analysis in the lower Ocmulgee River subbasin during 2010.

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 the year.

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 county or subbasin would exceed the number of irrigated acres that have been catalogued by the metering program and represented on this web site.
