The Act amends the Georgia Code provisions relating to water resources by authorizing the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to acquire or construct water supply reservoirs. The Act also authorizes the DNR to operate and maintain any project that embraces a water source or that distributes or sells water and other related facilities. The Act also provides for the protection of wetlands. Finally, the Act authorizes the DNR to contract and to execute leases and to do all things deemed necessary and convenient for operation of projects authorized by the Act.
