Check out this useful Interactive Map of Water Use by county for the Southeast created by Jon Becker!
A user can also select multiple counties at once with the Select Features tool and the graphs will dynamically adjust.
Scalable watershed boundaries are provided as a reference layer in case someone wants to get a rough approximation of water use by watershed (of course watershed boundaries don’t neatly align with counties).
You can zoom in/out with the wheel on your mouse or mouse over the lower left corner of the map to get zoom tools.
You may have to install Microsoft Silverlight plugin for the map to work, but it is not malware. Jon Becker wrote a description of the map including the USGS source data hyperlink that can be accessed at the Details button.

Once again we come to you to thank you for your support. No note we send can convey the affect your gift will make on the State of Georgia. This past year, Georgia River Network continued to provide the Georgia Water Wire blog which exposes readers to topics and the choices we all make regarding water, economics and politics – for better or worse- all over the state and region. The blog is an excellent resource for our partners to stay on-top of what’s happening and for citizens at the grassroots to learn new things.
With our partners in the Georgia Water Coalition, we released the second annual Dirty Dozen report last week which highlights Georgia’s most threatened water resources and the most egregious water pollution problems. By garnering significant statewide press coverage of the Dirty Dozen, we aim to educate the public about ongoing threats to our waterways and engage the public in finding a resolution.
Together, we are having a positive impact on the future of Georgia’s rivers, and we cannot thank you enough.
