Feds cut water flow to Apalachicola River

Posted Nov 16, 2007
The top federal wildlife agency announced Friday it would cut the water flow down the Chatahootchee and Apalachicola rivers to conserve water supply for the drought-stricken Atlanta area.

Reduced flows likely will kill a portion of protected mussels in the Apalachicola River but not wipe out the species, according to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials in Atlanta.
