The Alabama Water Resources Act (Act Number 93-44, codified as Code of Alabama 1975, Article 9-10B-1, et seq.) legislatively established the Alabama Office of Water Resources (OWR) and a division of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA) with oversight by the Alabama Water Resources Commission.

The Alabama Office of Water Resources is responsible for the planning, coordination, development and management of Alabama's ground and surface water resources.

Examples of the functions of OWR include but are not limited to:

  • Administering the Water Use Reporting Program which requires all major water users in the State to report annual water withdrawals by all public water systems, non-public users withdrawing 100,000 gallons of water or more per day and irrigation users with the capacity to use 100,000 gallons of water or more per day;
  • Representing the State of Alabama in the interstate water issues involving the Alabama-Coosa-Tallapoosa and Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basins;
  • Floodplain management; and
  • Drought planning.
