Cherokee County Water & Sewerage Authority, GA (Countywide Groundwater Investigation)

The Project

In light of anticipated water demand increases throughout the County, the expanding competition for surface water resources, and the time delays and costs associated with developing new surface water supplies, the Cherokee County Water and Sewerage Authority (CCWSA) felt it prudent to investigate the availability of groundwater resources within Cherokee County.  Groundwater resources developed within the County would be used to meet peak water supply demands and to supplement existing surface water sources.  With this goal in mind, EGGI was contracted to conduct a Countywide groundwater exploration and development program.

Status/Results:

EGGI has successfully completed Phases I and II of this Countywide study and has identified Groundwater Development Zones (sub-areas) and exploratory drilling targets throughout the County.  Drilling has been recommended for the fifty (50) most favorable (Primary-ranked) exploratory test well sites selected during the study.

This project is on-going. The next phase of this investigation will be to drill selected exploratory test wells and to determine the overall yield and quality of these potential groundwater resources.
