Water conservation not just 'symbolic'

Published on: 12/19/07
At a news conference to tout the success of his mandate to cut water use by 10 percent in the northern third of the state, Perdue clarified comments he'd made in late October to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's editorial board. At that time, Perdue said conservation was largely symbolic and would have a negligible effect on the area's supply.

The amount of water needed for Florida's Apalachicola River — more than 3 billion gallons a day — is being met by the other federal reservoirs on the Chattahoochee, and local stream flows, according to the corps.
