Watershed Protection Branch

The Watershed Protection Branch manages water resources in Georgia through permits to local governments and industry to discharge treated wastewater and to local governments, industry, farmers and subdivisions for surface water and groundwater withdrawals.  The Branch ensures that Georgia's public water systems are operating properly to supply safe drinking water to citizens, works to control nonpoint sources of pollution, including erosion and sedimentation, and manages storm water discharges. This Branch also conducts water quality monitoring and modeling of Georgia's waterways.

Please Note:

As of February 2014, the Georgia EPD Watershed Protection Branch offices have relocated from the

4220 International Parkway location to the Capitol Hill area.

Please refer to the Watershed Protection Branch Relocation and Watershed Protection Branch organization chart and phone list for more information.
