Georgia to appeal water wars ruling

Published September 16, 2009 - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
In court filings this week, the Georgia parties said they will ask the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta to overturn Senior U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson’s July 17 order.

Since the ruling, Perdue set out a multi-pronged strategy. In addition to litigation, he seeks water-sharing talks with the governors of Alabama and Florida. He has asked Congress to pass legislation allowing the metro area to tap into Lake Lanier. He is pushing North Georgia communities to find other water storage sources, including reservoirs.
