Placeholder Image
The release of a draft environmental impact statement on the proposed Glades Reservoir has been delayed again. According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, additional time is needed to complete hydrology models evaluating the impact of the reservoir on Lake Lanier and other local waterways. Moreover, cooperating agencies, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Environmental Protection Division, are still reviewing proposed water withdrawals from the Chattahoochee River.
