Water issues at Valdosta City Council 2017-03-09

A rare agenda with nothing about water on it does have this, “6. Citizens to be Heard”, which people from anywhere can use to talk about water issues such as sewage and its effects on the Withlacoochee, Alapaha, and Suwannee Rivers all the way to the Gulf, coal ash from TVA and Florida, PCBs, and Superfund wastewater in the landfill in Lowndes County, which is a quarter mile upstream from the Withlacoochee River and in a recharge zone for the Floridan Aquifer.

When: 5:30 PM, Thursday, March 9, 2017

Where: Council Chambers, City Hall, 216 E Central Avenue, Valdosta, GA 31601, 30.832961, -83.277471

What: Regular Meeting of the Valdosta City Council
You can speak about whatever you like; I think the time limit is three minutes.

There should be at least two Valdosta members of the Deep South Solid Waste Authority (SWA) sitting on the dais. Maybe they can tell us something about coal ash, PCBs, or Superfund wastewater.

And the whole Council and Staff maybe can speak to the recent sewage resolutions from Florida counties downstream.
