We launched this blog in January 2013 to provide you with more timely information about the Savannah River Basin and the ongoing drought. We also chose this platform to spur two-way communication and open up a dialogue for your questions and comments. You’ve certainly taken us to task over the last three months!
While many of you have displayed a very deep understanding of the intricacies involved with this delicate process of balancing the basin, we thought it was a good idea to give a refresher on the parameters the Corps must use while maintaining the congressionally–authorized purposes of the entire system.
In this post, we go to the Savannah District Commander, Col. Jeff Hall, who explains how the Corps adjusts priorities based on current drought levels. We continue to welcome your questions and comments, as well as feedback on what else you’d like to learn and who you’d like to hear from on this blog. ~ By Sandra Hudson, Broadcast Journalist, Corporate Communications Office
