The Department of Natural Resources is set to decide today whether or not to test a new underground water storage system. The $4 million experiment in Baker County will be Georgia's first attempt at aquifer storage and recovery. Backers say the idea has been used successfully around the country for decades.
The DA says members of that group, Baker County Citizens Concerned About Education, testified before the grand jury Monday. The group contends on its website that the board spends $14,000 per student on education and is not providing much of a return on taxpayers' investment.
