Florida lawmakers blast Georgia's water management

Published Jun 5, 2008
Florida lawmakers on Thursday accused Georgia officials of negligence in managing water consumption, urging the federal government to prevent further damage downstream in Florida's Apalachicola Bay.

At a meeting on Capitol Hill, the lawmakers said a recently unveiled federal plan governing the region's river basin gives Georgia a free pass for its conservation failures. They called on the Army Corps of Engineers to rescind the plan and said because Georgia's water consumption affects other states, the federal government should force Georgia to better plan for growth.
