Georgia senators today passed a resolution calling for the correction of survey areas along the state’s northern border in a 48-2 vote, a news release states.
“The Tennessee Valley Authority has identified the Tennessee River as a likely source of water for North Georgia,” said Sen. David Shafer, R-Duluth, as he presented the resolution. “Yet the state of Tennessee has used mismarked boundary lines to block our access to this important waterway.”
Georgia House Resolution 4 proposes a settlement of the boundary dispute, based on almost 200-year-old survey errors, clarifying Georgia’s access to Tennessee River water. It directs the state’s attorney general to sue to gain control of the entire area south of the 35th parallel if no agreement is reached with Tennessee, the Georgia Senate Press Office release states.
House Resolution 4 now returns to the House for agreement on amendments made by the Senate.

They're always out to get everybody's water lol
Have you seen the Chattahoochee?
I say settle it on da Gridiron!!!
If Atlanta would improve its own retention ponds and stop sucking every drop of water from the rest of the state, there would already be more than enough "water for North Georgia".
Roll Tide to Her
Most important part:
The Tennessee Valley Authority must approve interbasin water transfer that take water out of the Tennessee River watershed. TVA says it has not recommended using the river as a primary water source for North Georgia.
"We aren’t certain where Sen. Shafer got his information, but TVA is not involved in this discussion at this point," TVA spokesman Scott Brooks said.

CW, this needs to be in the water cooler, literally (G)
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
An episode of "How the States Got Their Shapes" talks about the 35th parallel in detail. It would move the Alabama line right up to Nickajack Lake.

Nick-A-Jack is about two minutes from where I grew up. My parents still live there still and have boats at Hale's Bar Marina.
No kidding! We have a lake house on Lake Martin and there have been numerous times where Georgia has held the water back causing the lake to be low.
Georgia held what water back on Martin ? Its all Alabama Rivers mainly the Tallapoosa.
