Georgia governor threatens to sue Army Corps of Engineers

`Worried that a drought could be looming, Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue said Tuesday the state will sue the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for draining excessive amounts of water from the state’s reservoirs. [..]

The Corps acknowledged over the weekend that a faulty gauge at Lake Lanier had allowed 22 billion gallons of water to be released by mistake. Carol Couch, director of Georgia’s Environmental Protection Division, said the amount of water mistakenly drained would have been enough to support the city of Atlanta for 118 days.’
