S. Fulton reservoir proposal criticized

Published April 28, 2009 - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Florida doesn’t like it either, because the 440-acre reservoir would stick another straw in the Chattahoochee River. In a letter to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which would have to OK the project, Florida raised concerns about the biological and economic impact of reduced water flows into the Apalachicola River and Bay.

In the meantime, the South Fulton Municipal Regional Water & Sewer Authority, which includes the city of Palmetto, hopes to get a needed permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The public comment period ends May 18.
