Chattahoochee: From Water War to Water Vision
Summary: "'Whiskey is for drinking, water is for fighting over' -- prophetic words credited to Mark Twain. Yet even he could scarcely have imagined they would one day apply to the Southeastern United States, a region better known for plentiful rainfall and abundantly flowing rivers. But for almost twenty years three states -- Georgia, Florida and Alabama -- have been locked in a fierce struggle over water.

"This longstanding conflict, recently racheted up to new level of intensity by a severe drought and a judge's dramatic ruling, is the subject of a new documentary for Georgia Public Broadcasting. Chattahoochee: From Water War to Water Vision, is currently being produced by Rhett Turner (Red Sky Productions) and Jonathan Wickham (ZoёTV). By interweaving individual stories, Chattahoochee: From Water War to Water Vision, will educate viewers on the complex issues and choices that increasingly face all of us when it comes to one of our most precious natural resources, water."--2010 Peabody Awards entry form.
