Albany-- It's hard to measure the importance of the Flint River Basin south Georgia's economy, human welfare, and environment. The water supply played a critical role in our region's development, and remains the life blood of Southwest Georgia's economy.

That's why decisions about future water use are so important. Experts with the Georgia Environmental Protection Division and the Southwest Georgia Water Resources Task Force met at Darton College today.

They talked about the state's most critical natural resource and what can be done to balance water use as our economies expand.

"We have been very focused on working here in Southwest Georgia to find the right balance between managing the resources of the aquifer here and I am very appreciative of the stake holders of Southwest Georgia that were involved with the EPD to make sure that as we are developing our policies were dialing them in just right" said Carol Couch with the EPD.

The Task Force has been meeting for seven years, and is trying to develop a plan for Georgia's water future. Feedback:
