Fla. to Ga.: Water war not just about mussels

Published July 21, 2008
Floridians upset by the lower flows coming down the Apalachicola River from Georgia made a clear point Monday: The tri-state battle over water isn't just a case of people vs. mussels.

"Georgia's governor is fond of saying this is a people versus mussels issue regarding Atlanta and the Apalachicola River and Bay," said Jeremy Branch, a Jackson County, Fla., commissioner. "The issue at hand is Atlanta's greed and gluttony versus Floridians' necessity and survival."
