Georgia officials to revisit interbasin water transfers

Special to SEGAZINE

For the first time, the state will have a way to transfer water from reservoirs on one stream and move it to another that is depleted by drought. Environmental organizations that oppose the building of reservoirs object to this new plan.

Downstream communities like Athens, Augusta, Savannah and Brunswick have generally opposed such interbasin transfers when used to provide water for upstream drinking and industry. They may be no happier about transfers for boosting the flow of streams in other regions for the sake of endangered species and drought mitigation.
