Don’t Let the Chattahoochee Run Dry
Location: Alabama, Georgia, Florida
The Chattahoochee River provides drinking water for millions in metro Atlanta, is one of America’s best trout streams, and was recently designated as our country’s first National Water Trail.
But now, a water war between Georgia, Alabama, and Florida has spurred proposals for costly new dams and reservoirs that would destroy recreation opportunities and wildlife habitat. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers must deny permits for these reservoirs and state decision makers must embrace more cost effective solutions, like water efficiency, in order to ensure a reliable water supply and healthy river for generations to come.
Take Action! Tell the Army Corps: No New Reservoirs on the Hooch
Urge the Army Corps of Engineers to deny permits for new reservoirs that would damage the river flows, destroy one of America’s best trout streams and create even more water supply problems for Atlanta. Take Action »
