The Tennessee Water Resources Information Act is designed to prevent the lowering of the ground water table by requiring that adequate information is obtained to document current demand for water and to project growth in that demand. No person shall withdraw 10,000 or more gallons of water per day from surface water or a groundwater source unless the withdrawal is registered and approved by the Commissioner of the Department of Environment and Conservation. The Water Withdrawal Registration Act is a part of the Tennessee Water Resources Information Act.
