Video: Corps Water Manager discusses Comprehensive Study

By Sandra Hudson, Broadcast Journalist

The Savannah River Basin Comprehensive Study would provide an in-depth set of data and analysis that would allow the Corps of Engineers to understand the value, impacts and risks to proposed changes in operations of the three reservoir projects, especially during drought. We completed the first interim of the study several years ago, and we anticipate to start the second interim soon. Additionally, the Nature Conservancy has been added as a non-federal sponsor to share costs on the study along with the states of Georgia and South Carolina. Read more about the Comp. Study here.

In this video, Savannah District Water Manager Stan Simpson discusses the information that would be gained throughout the study. As always, we welcome your questions and comments.
