Study sought for water needs

Published March 12, 2008
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers would conduct a water management study for the Southeast under a bill introduced Tuesday in hopes of quelling the water war between Alabama, Georgia and Florida.

"Water transcends state borders and political boundaries," said Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., at a House subcommittee hearing on water issues. "We need to stop trying to find winners and losers and do what is right — and what is necessary — to work together."

Lewis' bill would direct the Corps and other agencies to conduct a study of the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint basin, Alabama-Coosa-Tallapoosa River basin and Savannah River basin in hopes of finding a reasonable and scientific solution to water usage during the drought.
