State of Florida Sues Georgia Over Water Dispute

water-conservationGov. Rick Scott announced plans to sue the State of Georgia for cutting the flow of water that feeds the oyster beds and fish-spawning areas of Apalachicola Bay.
Florida says the Army Corps of Engineers has allowed the impounding of water upstream in large reservoirs, at the expense of Apalachicola oysters. Gov. Nathan Deal of Georgia called the move by Mr. Scott a frivolous waste of time and money, saying Georgia had waited more than a year for Florida to respond to its latest settlement proposal.
