Overview

This web-based toolkit is designed to help local water managers understand and address water management challenges related to climate change, urban development, pollution, interstate water rights, and more. It highlights key issues as well as providing access to the most current regulatory, educational, and decision support information, as well as discussing funding opportunities. It was developed for the State of Georgia. The Georgia Water Toolkit is an online portal that provides links to a variety of information to assist local governments in addressing water resources management issues. Specific topics covered in the toolkit include: water supply and protection, water conservation and reuse, stormwater, wastewater, regional water planning, and funding. Connecting visitors with up-to-date regulatory, educational, and decision support resources, as well as providing general discussions and definitions of water management topics and relevant case studies, this toolkit is designed for use by both experienced professionals and local government staff who are just beginning to operate in the water resources management sector. This toolkit is targeted primarily for Georgia citizens, but many of the concepts and resources have cross-state applicability.

Example in use: The Douglasville-Douglas County Water and Sewer Authority shares several of its case studies on stormwater management and water reuse through the Toolkit.
