"Radical" water-saving methods may become the norm in Atlanta

More on Atlanta drought from Treehugger:


TreeHugger has been on the Southeastern US drought story for months. See the most recent post here. While the Governor of Georgia seems content with blaming Federal regulations and threatening the US Army Corps of Engineers over a looming water crisis, ordinary citizens are taking personal responsibility for reducing their water consumption. Apparently, the City of Atlanta is happy with that. If this drought turns out to be the worst case scenario that some fear, only serious and immediate personal responsibility for water consumption, a virtue that, until recently, only Tree Huggers would love, can turn things around fast enough to avert a public health emergency.
