10:30AM-2PM, Tifton, GA, 2019-04-24, Notice

Floridians, don’t mistake SSRWPC for being like Florida’s Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD): it’s not. These Georgia Regional Water Planning Councils have no staff, no budget, no pay, and no ability to fine anybody. They are purely for making and updating a regional water plan. Also unlike SRWMD, which is mostly about the Suwannee River Basin plus some other watersheds that also go into the Gulf, SSRWPC crams the Suwannee together with the Satilla and the St. Marys, which go into the Atlantic.

For much context about SSRWPC, see its website. See also previous WWALS posts about SSRWPC, including videos of some previous meetings.
