Dear Editor: To Madison County residents, the Georgia Renewable Power plant off Hwy. 72 just outside of Colbert has submitted an application to discharge their wastewater onto our lands and waterways. They want to release this wastewater into local small streams and wetlands and finally the Broad River. Along the way this wastewater, which contains amounts of chloroform, phosphorus and cyanide will pass through Watson Mill State Park. The plant is expected to discharge over 205,000 gallons of wastewater a day.
The residents of Madison County can let the EPD know they oppose granting this permit by emailing their concerns to: EPDcomment@dnr.ga.gov — enter the following in the subject line — NPDES permit reissuance-GRP Renewable Energy Facility, LLC (Madison County/Franklin County).
