The history of drought in the Southeast region of the United States demonstrates the importance of conserving our water resources. Metro Atlanta faces some unique water resource challenges. It is located at the headwaters of its major river basins. This means we have the shallowest and smallest parts of these resources from which to draw our water. The granite bedrock beneath Cobb County means groundwater is not a viable supply for the region. Metro Atlanta and Cobb County remain dependent on surface water sources. Cobb County receives its water from the Chattahoochee River and Lake Allatoona.

Cobb County Water System has launched the Water Efficiency Program to assist customers with saving water and lowering water bills. There are programs and materials available through our Water Efficiency Program to help you as Cobb County strives toward the responsible management of this essential resource.
