Date of Defense 2012-04-25 Availability unrestricted AbstractPopulation growth and hydrological drought threaten the water supply of Atlanta,
Georgia. In Georgia, water policy changed rapidly due to stress on the resource, regulation
increased, and the state promoted a “culture of conservation” to combat water scarcity. This
study examines how regulatory measures, including legislative acts and Governor’s executive
orders, have impacted the population’s attitudes and behaviors towards water consumption.
Furthermore, public spaces are used to measure public perception of water policy, and serve as a
physical representation of the culture shift.
