Deal pushes to create more reservoirs

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal says he will work to resolve the so-called "water wars” over access to Lake Lanier and other waterways between the states of Georgia, Alabama and Florida.

In the meantime, Deal says he wants to build more reservoirs in the Peach State.

Deal said in his State of the State address that he wants Georgia to spend $300 million over the next four years for reservoir creation and expansion. He proposed $46 million in bond funding for the effort.

With that proposed commitment, we rate this as a promise In The Works.
