ST. MARYS — State Sen. William Ligon says a test project this summer in Southwest Georgia to store groundwater in the Floridan Aquifer did not have the results supporters hoped.

Despite the disappointing results, Ligon, R-St. Simons Island, said there are still elected officials who want to store groundwater in the aquifer as a supply of drinking water and to stop saltwater intrusion. That’s a big concern for Ligon, who says people supporting the use of the aquifer to store groundwater need “a reality check.”
