Governor Riley Pleased with Water Sharing Timetable
(2007-12-18)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Governor Bob Riley has agreed with the governors of Florida and Georgia to develop a water sharing plan by February 15th.

And he says he is extremely pleased with the outcome of their meeting yesterday in Tallahassee.

Riley spoke at a news conference after returning to Montgomery.

After the plan is drafted in February, federal agencies will have one month to review it. It will cover the two river basins that are shared by the three states and the impact a record drought has had on the region.

The staffs of the three governors will go to Washington after the first of the year to work with federal agencies on developing the plan.
