Georgia, Florida Battle Over Water Brews In Court

Nov 14, 2016

A decades-old battle over Georgia water will be sorted out in Washington, D.C. The U.S. Supreme Court will decide who has rights to supply and use water in a fight between Georgia and Florida. The decision will have a major effect on agriculture in those states. GPB's Sam Whitehead reports on a farmer in Southwest Georgia who has had to do some creative thinking about water conservation.

Lawyers for Georgia and Florida returned to court last month, and the case is expected to last for weeks. We talk about the case with Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter Dan Chapman.
