Public hearing on “beneficial use” of waste by-products for land application
Tuesday, January 7 at 1:30 pm | ADEM in Montgomery
This is an opportunity to share your concerns about the dumping of sludge, biosolids, and waste from municipal, industrial, and private sources on land across Alabama.
Thursday, January 9 at 6 pm | Shelby County High School in Columbiana
Join Coosa Riverkeeper, Alabama Rivers Alliance and conservation groups around the state for the Gaston Steam Plant public hearing concerning the steam plant’s National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. If you love Lay Lake, the Coosa, or any of Alabama’s waterways— this is your opportunity to make your voice heard to the Alabama Department of Environmental Management and Alabama Power Company.
This hearing is for the steam plant’s National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit that specifically regulates the amount of wastewater discharge from the plant including: stormwater, coal ash pond (that APCO’s self-reported data shows is contaminating groundwater), gypsum pond, cooling towers discharge, etc…. and what toxins they can discharge into river and in what amount.
