OK, they didn’t actually say that. They just declined to hear the two states’ request to continue to try to choke off Atlanta’s growth by denying North Georgia water from Lake Lanier and the Chattahoochee River.
Attorney General Sam Olens released the following statement on the news:
“I am pleased that the U.S. Supreme Court has denied certiorari, and the excellent decision by the Eleventh Circuit is the law – making clear that Lake Lanier can indeed be used for water supply for Georgia. It is my hope that we can finally put this decades-long legal dispute to rest and work together with our sister states — in meeting rooms, not courtrooms — to develop a fair and equitable water sharing plan and promote a strong and vibrant Southeastern region.”
