Altamaha Riverkeeper Urge the United States to Withdraw the Consent Decree

Altamaha Riverkeeper along with One Hundred Miles and Satilla Riverkeeper urge the United States to withdraw the Consent Decree or withhold consent to its entry because, as our comments will demonstrate, the Consent Decree is inappropriate, improper, and inadequate to cleanup Operable Unit One (“OU1”) at the site in compliance with the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act.  Alternatively, we urge the District Court, in its review of the Administrative Record, to deny entry of the Consent Decree because the terms of the Consent Decree are unreasonable and inequitable and are “inadequate to protect public health and the environment.” Read the entire comment letter from Southern Environmental Law Center.2018.09.20 Hercules OU1 Consent Decree – Comment Letter
