The Atlanta region has a serious problem with water. Recent droughts have demonstrated the fact that water isn't an unlimited resource. Worse, Atlanta's major water source is in jeopardy.

A year ago, a federal judge told Atlanta that it has been illegally drawing drinking water from Lake Lanier for decades. This necessitates immediate action.

We must start by conserving water through concrete steps such as: retrofitting our homes and businesses with low-flow plumbing and taps, submetering existing multi-family residences, and repairing the old, leaky pipes that transport water at the municipal level.

Between 10 and 30 percent of water entering the state's distribution systems is estimated to be wasted through leakage.
