More like solid granite worms, which would be even more terrifying!

I suggest underground nukes. We can use the craters for more reservoirs!

We tried it back in the 60s but the environmentalists and the peaceniks started bellyaching.

Why, I don't know. It worked perfectly well.

The original post said the following:

The city of Atlanta will soon bore a five-mile long tunnel from the Chattahoochee River to fill the quarry with an estimated 2.5 billion gallons of water.

Won't Alabama and Florida want to have some input about that water? I mean, they seem to claim every raindrop that falls in the Chattahoochee basin north of the metro.
