altamaha, ocmulgee, and oconee river basins joint meeting: January 22, 2010
The State Water Plan charges EPD with "ensuring coordination of water planning across the boundaries of adjoining water planning regions." The State Water Plan emphasizes the importance of coordination among councils for water resources that are hydrologically connected or those affected by water management activities in adjacent planning regions. Furthermore, Section 1D of the Regional Water Planning Councils’ Memoranda of Agreement, provides that the Councils are responsible for "coordinating with adjacent water planning councils and/or water planning councils that share resources." In order to meet these requirements, the Regional Water Planning Councils and EPD starting meeting jointly in January 2010.
On January 22, 2010, representatives of the Altamaha, Coastal, Middle Ocmulgee, Savannah-Upper Ogeechee, Suwannee-Satilla, Upper Flint, and Upper Oconee Regional Water Planning Councils, as well as members of the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District, met in Macon, Georgia to discuss shared resources.
