Transboundary Water Management

Helping the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint Stakeholders resolve the “Water Wars”

At the request of the major stakeholders in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River watershed—including cities, utilities, power companies and river keepers—the River Basin Center is providing information that might help them resolve a longstanding dispute over how to fairly allocate the waters between Georgia, Florida and Alabama.

The River Basin Center brought together and led a three-state consortium of faculty and students from UGA and other universities within the watershed to identify strategies for sustainable transboundary management of the ACF basin.
