well, maybe Atlanta shouldn't get water from the CHat, or any other river in Ga, TN, Al or NC. we will buld a salt water desalinazation project in the Augusta area and ruin the fishing there too? Grow up, the water belongs to God, we just use it for whatever we want, Not what he wants.
Sorry bout the rant
Was that "grow up" for me? I guess it could be, I do tend to annoy people sometimes.
When I hear people talking about not building dams or not taking water from a river, they're usually only talking about the negative impact of doing these things. They should also consider the negative impact of not doing them. And they should also consider where they get their water from.
We should be smart about where we get our water. From all the evidence I have seen, Lanier makes perfect sense for Atlanta's water supply. If there was no dam there, the Hooch, at least down to about Yellow Jacket creek, would have been a trickle many times over the last 4-5 years. God would have been letting those scallops die. Instead, we have to get our water from other sources and keep the life-giving water flowing to Florida.
I love scallops! Yum!
