Christine KleinThe day before the governors of Alabama, Florida, and Georgia met in Tallahassee to discuss the allocation of the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee and Flint Rivers (ACF) among the three states, UF Law Professor Christine Klein (pictured left) published an op-ed in the Orlando Sentinel on what measures the drough-stricken states can take to help themselves. First, Klein wrote, the states can adopt detailed water plans. “As any canoeist knows, one carefully planned paddle stroke now will do more than 10 frantic strokes just before the canoe crashes into an obstacle. Planning is just as important for state water officials,” Klein wrote. “Georgia lacks a comprehensive, modern water code.” Read what Klein and other UF Law professors are saying in the media and writing about in scholarly publications in FlaLaw Online’s weekly updates on Faculty Scholarship & Activities.
