Despite two consecutive years of plentiful rainfall in the lower Southeast, a dry spring in most areas has renewed interest in water management plans and officials in Alabama and Georgia are proceeding with plans to address the states' water issues. State contractors currently are installing 177 water meters on southwest Georgia farms. As many as 21,000 meters are to be installed during the next six years at an estimated cost of $36 million. Until now, farmers have been the only water users in the state what have not been required to track their consumption.
