I believe the solution to the water issues regarding Lake Lanier is very simple: What goes in comes out. Let God and nature regulate the flow of water from the lake.

The lake was built to control flooding and generate power. If the lake was not here, the flow of the river would go unregulated. That is the way it should be today; the water that flows into the lake should go out, just like the lake was not here.

We, the people, own these waters, not the U.S. Army, U.S. government, nor the courts. Let nature take its course.
