Top court stays out of water tiff between 3 states
ATLANTA (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court will not intervene in a dispute among three states over how Atlanta's water use affects areas downstream.
That's good news for the Atlanta area because it means a previous court ruling in its favor will remain in place. The high court's move on Monday is bound to frustrate authorities in Florida, Alabama and even southern Georgia. They complain that withdrawals from a federal reservoir in north Georgia harms wildlife, fisheries and drinking water supplies downstream on the Chattahoochee River.
