A federal judge in Birmingham today dismissed most of Alabama's lawsuit to prevent Georgia from siphoning too much water upstream from rivers that flow into the state.
U.S. District Judge Karon Bowdre ruled that Alabama's allegations that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was improperly controlling the water flows in the Alabama-Coosa-Tallapoosa river basin were premature because the Corps' decisions were not considered final administrative action.
