Last week, Gov. Sonny Perdue said he was planning to meet with Georgia’s environmental leaders to fill them in on the latest in the saga of the tri-state water wars.
Looks like the meeting will happen tomorrow. Invited groups include: Georgia Conservation Voters, Georgia Conservancy (led by former lieutenant governor Pierre Howard), Nature Conservancy, Upper Chattahoochee River Keepers (led by Sally Bethea), Georgia Wildlife Federation, the Georgia River Network, the Coosa River Basin Initiative, and Satilla River Keepers.
The governor held a similar — and well-attended — meeting last week with 2010 candidates for governor.
It’s an easy guess that environmental groups will be emphasize conservation as a quicker and cheaper way to make gains in water supply than new reservoirs. Lakes of any size would take years to build.
