Georgia Wins Latest Round in Water War

November 16th, 2007 by flanews

The U.S Fish and Wildlife Service has green-lighted the U.S Army Corps of Engineers to cut the amount of water flowing from Lake Lanier down into the Apalachicola River. Georgia, Alabama and Florida have been fighting a water war 17 years. New attention focused on the dispute because severe drought led to a water shortage in Atlanta. But Governor Charlie Crist wants to protect the commercial fishing and oyster industry on Apalachicola Bay. 90 percent of Floridas fresh oysters come from the bay. The governor expressed disappointment in the ruling. Hell meet with Alabamas and Georgias governors next month in Tallahassee.
