Journalism water workshop

March 11, 2003

Baker County -- Journalists from Georgia and Alabama are learning about water issues at a workshop in Newton.

The Jones Ecological Research Center is hosting the two day workshop, to teach journalists the science of water in Georgia. To help them better cover the hot political issues of water management policy.

Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reporter Bryan Brasher said "What would it be like if we could not fix our cup of coffee in the morning, or take a shower? Those could be very real problems in the future, and we need to head that off."

Agriculture, industry, environmentalists, and municipalities will all be battling for their interests as water management policies are determined in Atlanta.

 Better informed journalists can give more factual reports on the water wars.
