Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has signed legislation
that paves the way for public-private partnerships to build
reservoirs and other water infrastructure projects.
Deal signed the legislation Monday at the Georgia Chamber of
Commerce at Cobb Galleria.
Deal said providing for a stable and dependable water supply for
the state has been near the top of his agenda.
Supporters say it will give cash-strapped local governments an
alternative way to finance costly water projects as the state
stares down a federal judge's deadline that could limit metro
Atlanta's ability to withdraw water from Lake Lanier.
Opponents have said it gives private companies the ability to
make a profit off the state's water woes and could allow for
developments along the shores of new lakes that don't tap state
money.
