Brochures (404) 571-8505 From staff, wire reports Chattahoochee River users will be once again at the mercy of federal judges if a Birmingham lawsuit is successful in disbanding the Alabama Office of Water Resources.

The chairman of the Birmingham Water Works and Sewer Board said he does not want bureaucrats and political cronies tampering with the state's water. Horace W. Parker joined other board members in filing suit to shut down the state Office of Water Resources. They claimed in the suit, filed Thursday in Jefferson County Circuit Court, that Gov. Guy Hunt acted unconstitutionally last year when he created the office by executive order, because the Legislature just weeks before had killed a proposal to do the same thing.

Hunt spokesman Terry Abbott said the governor has the authority to establish the office. The Birmingham board asked the court to void the governor's executive order setting up the office and to stop the office from taking any further action to make itself a division of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs. Parker said the board believes the state office "would be a bloated agency. Alabama is one of the states that is blessed with tremendous water resources. It would be a real tragedy to let bureaucrats and political cronies start to tamper with i it." State officials have been told repeatedly by water negotiation experts that they will have no standing in current and future multi-state disputes over water, because Alabama has no data collection or plan for water use.

Two-thirds of the state's water supply comes from rivers in other states.
