BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- The state of Alabama has added new
complaints about the Atlanta area's water usage and the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers to its 17-year-old lawsuit over shared water
The state has filed papers in Birmingham challenging the
government's decision to hold more water in Georgia's Lake Allatoona,
which serves the Atlanta metro area.
Alabama officials also contend the Atlanta metro area is being
allowed to use more water than it is supposed to receive.
Neither the state of Georgia nor the Army Corps has responded to
the new claims, which come in a lawsuit filed in 1990 over water
sharing between Alabama, Florida and Georgia.
