State water plan program Thursday

The fight over sharing regional water resources has become so fluid a situation that like a meandering river, it's hard for most folks to follow.

Residents confused by the controversy and worried about a sustainable water supply may want to attend a special program 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday at Columbus' Psalmond Recreation Center, 6550 Psalmond Road.

It's titled “GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE — A Statewide Water Plan: What are the Consequences for Georgia?” and it's to explain what the drain on Georgia's water supply means for businesses, homeowners and public health.

Among those to speak are state Rep. Debbie Buckner, Columbus Water Works President Billy Turner and representatives from Georgia Conservation Voters and The Sierra Club.
