Land development in Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama and the surrounding region has exploded in recent years, leading to huge water allocation and other critical natural resource usage issues and threatening coastal marshland and other resource protection.
In the most recent U.S. Census, Georgia was ranked as the sixth fastest-growing state in the nation. The population grew nearly 27 percent in the past decade, while the urban area encompassed by metro Atlanta expanded nearly 50 percent in just six years. This staggering growth is not limited to urban areas. The population of Coastal Georgia, for example, is expected to double by 2020, according to The New Georgia Encyclopedia. We have seen comparable growth in South Carolina and Alabama.
