Supreme Court Refuses to Hear FL-GA-AL Water War Appeal

By Dave Williams, Atlanta Business Chronicle

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Supreme Court Monday (June 25th) refused to hear appeals by Florida and Alabama in their 20-year-old water war with Georgia.

Without comment, the justices declined to review an appeals court decision denying the two states’ claim that water supply was not an authorized purpose for Lake Lanier when the federally managed reservoir was built in the 1950s.
