Georgia water withdrawal permit
From Water Wiki
In 1972, Georgia passed a capacity use area regulation similar to North Carolina's 1967 law -- a regulation that applies only in particular places designated by an administrative agency. The statute was drafted by a commission that did not include representation from the agency that was to do the designation. Agency staff persuade then-Governor Jimmy Carter that it would be better to have a statewide permit system, and with Governor Carter's support, that approach passed the Georgia legislature in 1973. The Georgia water withdrawal permit system is now the foundational regulatory piece for the Georgia water plan.
Here are two examples of actual Georgia water withdrawal permits for groundwater extraction. The first, for the City of Bainbridge, is typical of other permits in the state that have few special conditions. The second, for the City of Savannah, adds special conditions to deal with some of the particular water issues in the Savannah area, such as saltwater intrusion and overpumping of the Floridian aquifer.
Here is a Georgia water withdrawal permit for surface water, for Fayette County.
