As an environmental lawyer with Taylor English, Craig Pendergrast weighs in on the five-week water wars hearing between Florida and Georgia in his article published by the Daily Report.
The water wars case has partially focused on metro Atlanta's water consumption. Mr. Pendergrast mentions that Atlanta developed and implemented water management and conservation plans as a result of the 2001 Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District Act. The Florida v. Georgia equitable apportionment case regarding the waters of the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin continues, but Mr. Pendergrast points out that allegations of Atlanta's over-consumption of water seem to have quieted. What will happen now?
