The Covington News - - NEWS - BRYAN FAZIO bfazio@cov­news.com

Wa­ter re­sources from around the en­tire state are suf­fer­ing, ac­cord­ing to James Brown, Newton County wa­ter re­sources di­rec­tor.

Brown par­tic­i­pated in a con­fer­ence call with the Ge­or­gia En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Divi­sion (EPD) Wed­nes­day, in which dif­fer­ent agen­cies shared data on the state’s cur­rent rain short­fall.

All agen­cies are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing low pools in their reser­voirs with lit­tle sign of rain on the wall.

“We are keep­ing close mon­i­tor with the state and the reser­voirs that we have here to make sure we’re do­ing our best, and come up with the most ef­fi­cient ways to save as much wa­ter as we can” Brown said.

Lack of rain­fall and high tem­per­a­tures have led to the reser­voir at Lake Varner, and other re­sevoirs through­out the state to see wa­ter short­ages.
