Georgia's Water Crisis and the Surveys That Could Have Stopped It
The 35° of north latitude runs through the course of the Tennessee River and the Nickajack Reservoir in what is today South Pittsburgh, Tennessee. If modern day technology were used to place the state of Georgia's corner as negotiated in the 1802 Articles of Agreement and Cession, the iron pin would be placed in the depths of Nickajack Reservoir in the Tennessee River bed. After politics interfered in the surveying of the 35th parallel, a limited budget and poor technology caused the accepted corners of the north Georgia boundary line to exclude this abundant water source.
