Apalachicola Mayor on Water Wars

Published Dec 14, 2007
Mayor Van Johnson today called upon the Governor's of Florida, Georgia and Alabama to use restraint when finalizing a solution on the "Water War" controversy. "While Georgia clearly needs additional water for growth around Atlanta," the mayor said, "the Governor's should agree that no further reduction in water flow should be agreed upon or allowed by the Army Corps of Engineers until Atlanta and Georgia have planned adequately for the long term infrastructure needs of growth in the state."

The Governor's of the three states are due to meet in Tallahassee on Monday to discuss ways of resolving the dispute.
