The following announcement was made in June, 2012:
Montgomery, Ala. –“ Less than a year after the Alabama Rivers Alliance and the Southern Environmental Law Center released the Alabama Water Agenda calling on state leaders to develop a comprehensive water management plan for Alabama, Governor Bentley has given five state agencies the directive to put together a comprehensive water management plan by December 2013.”
