Protect seafood industry

Published December 09, 2007 (Opinion)
Throughout the fall, Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue had complained that water from Lake Lanier northeast of Atlanta no longer should have to be sent south, eventually flowing into Florida's Apalachicola river and bay. Not surprisingly, the governor cared about metro Atlanta residents suffering through the worst drought in recorded history, not the Florida Panhandle seafood industry that also depends on fresh water to nourish the estuary.

The governors of Florida, Georgia and Alabama will meet on Dec. 17 to discuss these tri-state water issues. Florida has a good case, if Gov. Crist will make it.
