Plenty of water. Shower, shave, brush and flush.

Default The next water shortage is a threat to future growth

We're in a wet period but every 7-10 years we switch between wet and dry periods. Governor Deal has done hardly anything to deal with the water shortage. Quote from http://smyrna.patch.com/groups/brian...iggest-threat:

Quote:
On March 18th, 2013, the Georgia general assembly passed HR*4*2013-2014 Regular Session. This is a resolution to move the Georgia border 1 mile North to the legal boundary only for 1 mile of border with Alabama on unpopulated land. This move would put our border over part of Lake Nickajack and give us access to Lake Nickajack, pending approval from the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) of how much water we could extract from the lake.

Tennesee's governor mocked the referendum and is not taking it seriously. He is not ready to work with us to figure out a solution.

Our legislature authorized the Attorney General to sue the state of Tennessee over the border. Then nothing happened after that. If we wait until the next drought, it could be too late and could stall our growth. That means our home values going down.

When it's rainy, folks quickly forget how bad the last drought was. The whole moving the boarder idea was a waste of time and money - but it's about what we should expect from the Gold Dome these days. I fail to understand why we haven't invested in more reservoirs. Perhaps it was the state of Georgia's budget during the recent recession. But, regardless, you are so right: as our region's population continues to bust at the seams the next drought will be felt even more painfully.

I'm not sure it is. Based on precedent for land disputes, GA would probably win a lawsuit if it went all the way to the Supreme Court. What is king is not what cartographers do, but instead what is on paper. I would hope that it would be settled before that. I don't really want our state really needs any of East Ridge.

So long we keep electing idiots, we can always count on them to pray for rain.

It worked last time!

^^^^^^This! Why spend time, resources or (given)brain power on building/planning additional reservoirs? Those extra 3 million people expected by 2040 can all just join the then governor at the state capital and sing Kum Ba Yah, It's all good, go to sleep Atlanta!

I think Georgia has a legitimate claim, but it hasn't tried to enforce it. Not sure of the legai issues as Georgia has not until recently tried to assert its claim. Probably have to go to the Supreme Court.

But don't worry, the street car will ensure future explosive growth and expansion.
