DEMONSTRATING THAT MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES WILL BE ACHIEVED IN ROCKDALE COUNTY, GEORGIA
Rockdale County GA performed a watershed assessment to develop a management plan that will provide for water quality protection while achieving other local objectives, including expansion of water supply and wastewater treatment capacity. The project team applied an innovative planning process that links management objectives, assessment information, predictive modeling tools, and stakeholder participation to tailor management to risks. For each management objective, the County established one or more measurable quantities (indicators) to assess current condition and the risk of not meeting the objective in the future. The use of a target (i.e., the value that the County wants to achieve) for each indicator provided a basis for identifying significant risks and for evaluating which management options best achieve the targets. Quantitative models that predict the indicators provided the tools to support both watershed assessment and management planning. The results provided an effective means for the County and stakeholders to evaluate management options, and achieve a higher degree of confidence that the selected plans will be successful.
