Governor Schedules Water Stakeholder Meetings in Columbus, Albany

Governor Sonny Perdue today announced that he has scheduled water stakeholder meetings in Columbus and Albany next week. A wide array of business people, local officials, elected leaders, agriculture representatives and board members of regional water councils have been invited to the briefings.

“Judge Magnuson’s ruling has impacts up and down the Chattahoochee and Flint basin,” Governor Perdue said. “While much of the media’s focus has been on Atlanta, it is also vitally important that Georgians outside the metro area understand the key role they will play in protecting and managing our water resources.”

The Columbus meeting will take place at Columbus Technical College next Wednesday. On Thursday, the Governor will visit Darton College in Albany. At both meetings, Governor Perdue will meet with local media as well.
