During this time of extreme drought, work continues on a statewide water plan.

Tuesday the Lower Flint and Ochlocknee Georgia Water Council finalized recommendations for water stewardship in South Georgia.

Members worked on the plan on for the last three years.

Some farmers on the council want to make sure their industry continues to have the water they need to raise their crops.

Chairman Richard Royal says more work needs to be done.

Lower Flint Water Committee Chairman Richard Royal said  "I think we need to continue the effort. We are going to ask the legislature to continue the effort and let us go further from here and do the best things we can for the whole state of Georgia and conserving water."

The Flint group's recommendations will now be submitted to the Environmental Protection Division for approval.
