We are experiencing water shortages because the mountains of North Georgia is where the water is collected from the heavens and sent south by creeks, rivers and underground streams. The Realtors of North Georgia are putting houses on every ridge and mountain top. They grade roads atop every ridge in the county. If the rains cannot hit on the ground, it CANNOT soak into the ground to create the streams, rivers, and lakes. California finally passed legislation to stop building on mountains, but, waited until their water supply was gone to do it. Why let the rich destroy the environment just so they can have a house with a 'VIEW". Georgia Government has ignored the need for an elevation law for 60 years, they are running out of time! Creeks that used to have 24 inch trout in them in 1963 are so dry now, they do not even have craw-fish any more. It is a "Do or Die" situation. If the Government of Georgia does not "DO" the right thing and pass an elevation law. The streams and rivers "WILL DIE"They are in death-throws as I type! Thank You, Harry Allgary
