Source Water Assessment

The Cherokee County Water and Sewerage Authority and the Atlanta Regional Commission  have completed a source water assessment itemizing potential sources of surface water pollution to your drinking water supply.  Your drinking water is supplied from the Etowah River and Lake Allatoona.  A Source Water Assessment is a study and report which provides the following information.

  • Identifies the area of land that contributes the raw water used for drinking water
  • Identifies potential sources of contamination to drinking water supplies
  • Provides an understanding of the drinking water supply’s susceptibility to contamination

The results of this assessment can be found in the links below.
