Court hands big victory to Ga. in tri-state water war

A federal appeals court handed Georgia an enormous victory in long-running, tri-state water litigation yesterday, overturning a decision by a federal judge that could have sharply curtailed the availability of water in Atlanta beginning next summer. The three-judge panel of the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously that the Army Corps of Engineers has authority to allocate additional water from Lake Lanier, a reservoir about 25 miles north of downtown Atlanta, to meet the increasing drinking water needs of the Atlanta metro area. The court gave the Army Corps a year to come up with a new plan for managing the lake.
