Glades Reservoirs mention in corps water report perplexes, pleases
Corps: 850-acre water source reasonable and foreseeable to occur

Wading through documents dictating future operations of the tri-state water basin isn’t like a breezy stroll along Lake Lanier’s sunny shoreline. But, for Georgia water watchers, one major thing sticks out in the 794-page, highly technical draft report, which is set for a series of public hearings starting Oct. 26 in Gainesville. The Army Corps of Engineers’ water manual accounts for 40 million gallons per day in water supply from the proposed Glades Reservoir in North Hall County.
