Government mistakes on Water Supply

As posted a week ago, we are in a deep drought and that is all the news is about now. An article in the AJC
reported on some huge amounts of wasted water by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. One case last year was from a faulty gauge that resulted in over 22 billion gallons of water released from Atlanta's main water source, Lake Lanier. Another case involves an endangered species (mussels)
that needs a certain water level to survive. So some water is set aside for them. No doubt they have a role in the environment but to try to save a species with water that humans need is ridiculous. No one would ever miss them (the mussels not the Atlantans :)). Everyone makes mistakes but with a company there would be someone held responsible. With the government screwing up no one will be held responsible.
