Plant Washington Public Comments Dominated by Plant Opponents

Last night Georgians from across the state told the EPD, P4G, and community leaders that Plant Washington is not supported and that water permits should not be issued. We  had new people there from other Middle Georgia counties who said that based on their knowledge and experience living near other coal plants, the promises being made can't be kept.

The GA Chapter of the Sierra Club submitted 600 comments opposing the plant, and FACE submitted 400 (with more to be sent in by Friday). We also picked up some nice coverage from the Fox and ABC channels in Macon last night and GPB today.

Tomorrow I am speaking to the Washington County Board of Commissioners about closing one road near the plant and a major re-route of another. That will be interesting. Stay tuned.
