States may keep trying to reach water deal

Published Aug. 16, 2008 - The Times, Gainesville, GA.
This week, reacting to federal judge Paul Magnuson's announcement that the water supply case would go forward, Alabama Gov. Bob Riley gave a hint that he might be willing to continue talks.

"The federal judge handling these cases has emphasized the need for the three states to work out a long-term solution to this problem," Riley said. "He is certainly right, and I remain ready to meet any time, anywhere, with Gov. Perdue and Gov. (Charlie) Crist to work toward an equitable agreement for sharing this vital natural resource."
