Burns & McDonnell-Southeast Issues Statement Regarding July 15 Press Release

ATLANTA, July 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- An infographic and press release issued by Burns & McDonnell-Southeast on Monday, July 15, were factually incorrect.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, water withdrawals throughout the state were estimated at 5.5 billion gallons per day in 2005. Since 2006, total water usage throughout the state has declined by varying percentages, notably including reductions of about 15 percent in Metro Atlanta, thanks to water conservation measures championed and implemented by the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District, the State of Georgia Environmental Protection Division, Georgia water systems and their customers.

We regret the error and apologize to the Atlanta Regional Commission, the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District and the Georgia Environmental Protection Division for any confusion we have caused.
