Water Wars Hearing

Officials with the Army Corp of Engineers are looking for public input about an agreement that aims to lessen the amount of water running through the Chattahoochee River.

The agreement is part of a court order.

While many cities and businesses in Georgia want more water to serve the people in and around Atlanta.

Officials in Florida and Georgia want more water from the river to use for economic growth and in the Wiregrass; county leaders are also concerned about one industry that truly depends on the river to operate.

"Primarily from our perspective, the representation of the Farley Nuclear Plant and their ability to get equipment up the river, as well as the flow that they may need for expansion," said Chairman Mark Culver of Houston Co. Comm.

Officials with the Army Corps of Engineers say they plan to analyze all of these concerns before conducting an environmental impact study on the proposed agreement.
