Yesterday, the Georgia Water Coalition, a consortium of 217 conservation, environmental, and other organizations, released its annual “Dirty Dozen Report.” Click on the link below for a full copy of the Report. The Report condemns water policy in Georgia’s, including efforts to capture and control water in Georgia during times of plenty for use during times of drought, Georgia’s reaction to EPA’s damaging overreach to “protect” water of the U.S.–down to the very last drop—and EPD’s decision limit 25-foot stream buffers to streams, before using water policy to oppose individual infrastructure projects. The Report’s focus on water policy leaves little room within the “Dirty Dozen” to address areas of real concern.
Reaction to the Dirty Dozen Report’s condemnation of Georgia Water Policy, and the proposed Glades Reservoir in particular, was published in the Gainesville Times.
Reaction to the Dirty Dozen Report’s condemnation of Georgia Water Policy and the proposed Sabal Trail pipeline was published in the Albany Herald.
