Today, Sam Olens writes as a guest columnist in the AJC.   You can read the article here.  He writes,

“The water usage of metro Atlanta is not the cause of this current, acute situation. Neither is the region’s population growth. In fact, Atlanta is the only major metropolitan area in the country with a comprehensive water conservation program that is required and enforced.”

So all of the experts at the Corps who keep warning us that Lanier cannot sustain our population are wrong.  Is Olens saying, that with all of the new population growth, that all these new people don’t drink and use water?
