OCTOBER 16th 5:30 PM: Protest S&R Sewage Discharge Permit Renewal
S&R, unlike all other sewage discharge companies in the area, refuses to pay the solid waste treatment fee ($15/load) and is permitted to dump sewage into an open pit, polluting surrounding air and water. This permit continues to be granted, despite the fact that S&R has not complied with conditions placed on previous renewals. The Abeta exploratory well may also be contaminated by the sewer pit. Mary Lane urged everyone to attend the County Commision’s meet at 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 16 to protest the renewal of S&R’s permit. Contact Mary Lane Leslie at 575-776-7489 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
