Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue wants to make “Peach“ with Florida.
Perdue says Georgia has kept its coastline pristine and yet Florida claims that Georgia is choosing the water needs of people over the environment.
He says he would still like to reach an agreement with Florida about sharing water in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-flint river basin.
According to Perdue, Florida is withholding water from Lake Lanier and he says it harms endangered mussels and sturgeon.
For years, Florida and Alabama have accused Georgia of withholding too much water from the lake, drying up river flows into their states.
