Issues

A few issues that cross state lines and organizational boundaries within the Basin:

  • the chronic Valdosta, Lowndes County, and other wastewater leak problems,
  • the Army Corps of Engineers flooding study,
  • drought and flooding issues in general,
  • hydrogeology of the karst limestone underlying our rivers
  • and containing the Floridan Aquifer,
  • water bottling plants (Nestle recruits employees from Valdosta and points north for its Madison bottling plant),
  • the Cody Scarp and its sinks for the Alapaha, Santa Fe, and other rivers,
  • and the Sabal Trail methane pipeline.
