Perdue to speak at West Point Lake

Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue will hold a news conference in West Point Wednesday afternoon to discuss the drought.

The trip to the Chattahoochee Valley comes a day after the governor issued an order that all utilities drawing water from the Chattahoochee River and other drought-stricken resources cut their usage by 10 percent.

Perdue will be at R. Shaefer Heard Park at 2:45 p.m.
