 The Erosion and Sediment Control Program was set up to improve and protect Georgia's urban soil and water resources by reducing the amount of erosion from urban development sites.  The program does this through the use of best management practices (BMPs) as called for in the soil and water conservation districts law and delivered through soil and water conservation districts.

The Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission (GSWCC) supports locally led soil and water conservation districts through education, technical, financial and planning assistance and through program oversight.

Information about the GSWCC is available at http://gaswcc.georgia.gov or by calling (706) 552-4470.

    Heat and humidity continue

    The bulk of the rain has been well to our west today and will stay that way for the duration of tonight and tomorrow. We'll only see an isolated shower or storm the next few days due to most of the tropical moisture lifting well north of us. That's all due to an area of low pressure in the upper Midwest that is sucking it all north. This will leave us on the warm and humid side of things, which is why isolated showers and storms are in the forecast the next few days.
