6pm EPD Public Hearing and Comment Period

Recently,the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) issued draft permits for a proposed coal plant near Sandersville, Ga.  In response, thousands of citizens from across the state, concerned for their health and electricity costs, called and wrote emails and letters asking EPD to hold multiple permit hearings in cities around the State.

However, In addition to issuing the draft permits, the state Environmental Protection Division IGNORED the requests of over 1,000 people to hold hearings on this proposed coal plant at locations around the state, and schedule ONLY TWO hearings, both to be held in Sandersville, Georgia.

As Americans, it is our right and responsibility to remind government officials that we want them to protect our air and water from pollution.
