Throughout the 2007 year, many changes have occured throughout the state and fishing conditions may have changed as well. The 2007 drought has reached its peak. STATISTIC: Two more months of this type of climate and MOST of Atlanta will not have drinking water. We dont have an alternative source because its drying up too. Our main sources of drinking water here in the Atlanta area (Pretty much everyone within 60 miles of Atlanta) are the Chattahoochee River and Lake Lanier. Thats about it for us though. Alatoona is drying up very quickly as well. Some lakes however have not been inflicted with the dramatic toll the drought has taken on the big lakes. Lake Acworth for example, the water has maybe dropped all but one foot. Its not too big there, but why there when Alatoona right next to it looks like a desert? I crossed the bridge linking Acworth and Alatoona. Acworth was pretty and had plentiful amounts of water. Alatoona was a wasteland. The amount of water i saw there would not pass off as a creek! Dead plants, and dirt is mostly what you will see on that bridge. Take short showers, turn the water off, so on so forth. Put it this way. When we shop, we tend to buy ingredients for dinner and maybe food for the kids etc. Think about what happens when we do not have the water. We would probably be eating hot pockets and spaghettios for the duration of this period. We would not be able to take showers, brush our teeth, wash our own dishes, flush our toilets if this continues long enough. Now what effect does this have on our fish? Well besides the ones that dry up in the dirt, you would think nothing right? well your wrong. Fish would move more inward towards where the remaining water is. However, they will overpopulate. As the lake gets smaller and smaller the amount of fish is partially the same as it was around this time last year. All the fish would start eating the little fish and then smaller fish would keep being eaten by bigger fish until the last fish is standing, then it will starve. If this type of inclimate weather continues, and spawning season comes 'round, We are in trouble. By then almost all of Atlanta wil have no drinking water and the fish, will be left to suffer. So please people take action and do something. Conserve your water and save it because we will need it. Most likely, one Hurricane Katrina would not put us back on track so we, the state of Georgia, are desperate right now. You, my fellow statesmen, do not need to contribute to this ongoing crisis. Thank you.
