Two questions to be answered in updated study

January 31, 2013

The second part of a Savannah River Basin study to be undertaken by the Army Corps of Engineers is designed to answer two questions: How low can reservoir releases be before irreversible harm is done to the economy and environment? And how long can releases be kept at the lowest recommended level? “Many people eagerly seek answers to these questions, and rightly so. The livelihood of people and the ecosystem depend on it. However, prudence, also cautions us for the possibility that the results may be disagreeable. The data we find might favor lower flows – but it might suggest our current minimum outflows need increasing,” said Russell Wicke of Savannah District Corporate Communications.  The second part of the study will cost an estimated $908 thousand.
