Global Warming Becoming Real

Lake Lanier Disappearing

— October 18, 2007 — Eco
After the worst drought in 100 years, Lake Lanier, the main water source for Atlanta's four million inhabitants, could be bone dry in as little as 90 to 121 days. The Army Corps of Engineers want to end water downstream, causing huge concern for citizens.

"We battled them over recreation for a lot of years, but we never thought we'd have to battle them over drinking water," Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle told AccessNorthGa, adding that if no advances are made by the courts, they "may be in a dangerous scenario within 81 days."

Restaurants aren't serving patrons water unless specifically asked for it.

Lake Lanier normally has 38,000 acres (153.8km²) of water, and 692 miles (1,114 km) shoreline, attracting 7.5 million visitors a year. North Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, and Florida are also affected in a major crisis. "If Governor Sonny Perdue is successful in stopping the Corps' efforts water from Georgia lakes could stop flowing to Florida and Alabama," WSFA TV reported. "The situation it's creating a lot of tension between the three states which have been locked in an ongoing dispute over how to manage the region's limited water supply for some time."
