Authority to Establish GMP Regional Engagement Present and Future Needs Introduction WCUA: Aiken, Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Calhoun, Lexington, and Orangeburg Management Strategies and Provide Direction General Goals: Ensure sustainable development of the groundwater resource by management of groundwater withdrawals; and, Monitoring of groundwater availability to evaluate conditions.

Current groundwater sources utilized; water demand by type and amount used; aquifer storage and recovery and water reuse; Projected population and growth; water demand; opportunities for aquifer storage and recovery, as well as water reuse; groundwater and surface water options; and, Water conservation measures. Adaptive Management and Continuous Improvement Definitions Adverse Effects: Undesirable

consequences of withdrawing groundwater that may include: changes in water quality, significant reduction in water level of the aquifer, saltwater intrusion, land subsidence, and decreases in stream flow. Best Management Plan: A document that supports the design, installation, maintenance, and management of water conveyance systems and/or water withdrawal systems (water supply, commercial, industrial, agricultural, etc.), which promotes water conservation, and protects water quality. Groundwater Withdrawer: Any person withdrawing groundwater at or in excess of three (3) million gallons during any one month from a single well or multiple wells within a one-mile

radius of any existing or proposed well. Groundwater User: A person using groundwater for any purpose. Person: An individual, firm, partnership, association, public or private institution, municipality or political subdivision, local, state, or federal government agency, department, or instrumentality, public water system, or a private or public corporation organized under the laws of this State or any other state or county. Reasonable Use: The use of a specific amount of water without waste that is appropriate under efficient practices to accomplish the purpose for which the appropriation is lawfully made.

Sustainable Use: Use of ground water in a manner that can be maintained for an indefinite time without causing unacceptable Geopolitical Structure Two COGs in WCUA uniform geographical framework within which the planning, programming, and delivery of services by state, federal, and local government might be undertaken with maximum efficiency and effectiveness.
