MetadataShow full item record
A comprehensive water resources management study has been authorized by the 1996 Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) directing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to develop an updated plan addressing current and future needs in the basin, examine reallocation of storage, and to develop a better management structure to deal with basin water resources issues. The Reconnaissance Phase and development of a scope of work for the feasibility phase was completed in July and September of 1999, respectively. A Feasibility Study Cost-Sharing Agreement, defining a partnership with the states of Georgia and South Carolina, was signed in June 2000. Under this agreement, the feasibility phase is cost-shared 50% Federal funds and 50% combined state funds. Currently, as the states secure their cost shares, the Corps-Georgia-South Carolina team has been defining the overall study make-up, and initiating the first study actions.
