Give your local input on state water plan

October 16, 2007

Albany--  Experts want to know what you think about water usage and conservation.

The state water council is holding public hearings all over the state to get input on Georgia's first Comprehensive Water Management Plan.

The third hearing was held Tuesday night at Albany State. With 6-billion gallons of water used every day in Georgia, we need to make sure we use it wisely.

"How we allocate those resources, how we best use them are very important. It's important for agriculture. It's important for health and human services. It's also important for our economy," said Chris Clark.

Two years ago, Governor Sonny Perdue put the State Water Council together to come up with the comprehensive plan to present to the General Assembly.
