Water confab at the Hartwell Dam

September 19, 2013

confab1 Historic is the way a Georgia state lawmaker described yesterday’s meeting about water. State, federal and local leadership joined together at the Hartwell Dam to discuss how better to manage the Savannah River basin. The Georgia and South Carolina governors were there, and South Carolina’s Nikki Haley praised efforts to work together. Oconeean Ben Turetsky was there in his role as executive director of Friends of Lake Keowee and said an important agreement to study the basin came out of yesterday’s meeting. The summit heard a warning from the Savannah River keeper from Augusta. She said what happens to the river downstream is just as important as what happens upstream. And she called the 400-mile river is the 4th most toxic in the country.
