Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to consider Florida’s lawsuit against Georgia regarding the increased withdrawals of water from the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River system, which has caused a fisheries disaster in the Apalachicola Bay. The two states have been trying to work out their differences for many years to no avail, and this lawsuit seeks to equitably divide the water resources between them. According to published reports, the U.S. Solicitor General had recommended a delay in the case pending revisions in the river system management plan by the Army Corps of Engineers. Although those revisions are not expected to be completed until 2015, the Supreme Court Order will allow the case to proceed.
