Summaries

Summary Sentence: A documentary on how Georgia, Florida and Alabama have wrestled over access to water for its citizenry

Full Summary: For almost twenty years three states – Georgia, Florida and Alabama – have been locked in a fierce struggle over water.

Whiskey is for drinking, water is for fighting over" – prophetic words credited to Mark Twain. Yet even he could scarcely have imagined they would one day apply to the Southeastern United States, a region better known for plentiful rainfall and abundantly flowing rivers. But for almost twenty years three states – Georgia, Florida and Alabama – have been locked in a fierce struggle over water.

Join Engineers for a Sustainable World at Georgia Tech (ESW-GT) in the screening of "Chattahoochee: From Water War to Water Vision" to learn more about this local issue and the choices we must all face.
