Water Ruling Protects Metro Atlanta's Future

Press Release

The Supreme Court today validated last summer's ruling by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in favor of Georgia in the tri-state water case.

"This is welcome news and affirms our state's position that Lake Lanier can be utilized for water supply," said Rep. Gingrey. "Now it is time to move forward in updating the Corps' water use manuals to safeguard metro Atlanta's water interests in the future."

This decision prevents a 2009 ruling that would have returned metro Atlanta's water withdrawals to mid-1970s levels, threatening public health and halting economic development throughout the Southeast.
