Water War Rages On

January 17th, 2008 by flanews

Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue told Georgia lawmakers yesterday that he would not let other states stop Georgia from using water for development and growth. At issue is how much water Georgia can use from Lake Lanier.† A record drought and reduced water flow into Florida is already having an impact on oyster harvests in Apalachicola. Florida Governor Charlie Crist says he is working for an equitable solution.

ďThe governorís a friend of mine,” Crist said.† “Iím going to everything I can to help Florida.† He should work hard to help Georgia, and Iím sure Governor Reilly will do everything to help Alabama.† Thatís what each governor should do.† In this situation with the three states, we have to work together to come to an agreement and I believe that we will to make sure things work out for all three states.Ē

The three governors met in November and promised to agree on a plan acceptable to all three states. Crist refused to comment specifically on Perdueís remarks, saying he didnít know the context in which they were made.
