The Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-FlintRiver (ACF) Basin has been the locus of ongoing conflict and controversy among the states of Georgia, Alabama and Florida for decades. They, together with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, are now near the end of a comprehensive planning study which provides the opportunity for long-term cooperative agreements. Florida's perspective regarding water use issues is discussed. Any interstate coordination mechanism for the ACF must give adequate recognition to and consideration of Florida's needs for water quality and quantity in the Apalachicola River to maintain its fisheries, recreation and tourism activities.
