Forsyth County Water Intake
For the first time in our history, Forsyth County will enjoy water independence. A decades-long, multi-state federal lawsuit forced Forsyth County to rely upon a single water intake facility at Lake Lanier owned by the City of Cumming to supply water to the entire County.
A recent favorable ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court has given Forsyth County the ability to construct our own water intake facility at Lake Lanier and take control of our water future. The new Forsyth County Water Intake will allow the County to meet the water needs of residents, farmers, businesses and others in our community. It is a pivotal milestone for our County, decades in the making. Most importantly, it will ensure Forsyth County has a safe, reliable, high quality water supply for future generations to prosper.
