ACF Stakeholders meet in Albany

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – People from three states gather in Albany to talk about one of the most important resources we have, water. For two decades, lawyers and legislators have fought over the allocation of water shared by Georgia, Alabama and Florida.

Thursday, stakeholders from the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin came together in Albany to come up with proposals to preserve that most precious resource for years to come.

Vince Falcione said, "Hopefully everybody's needs can be met. There's going to have to be some give and take. We really want to be a resource, a respected resource for the decision makers when it comes to how are we going to allocate water? How are we going to do this with water? We want to be a resource for those people making the decisions."

The grassroots organization believes that any solution to the tri-state water conflict must be consensus based and must also benefit every user.
