Shots Fired in the Battle over the Buffer

By Brian Lucy, Altamaha Riverkeeper & CEO

Why is Director Judson Turner of the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) blatantly defying the Georgia Court of Appeals and urging others to follow his lead?

Kids Drinking Water

On August 12, 2014 Mr. Turner fired off a memorandum to Local Issuing Authorities and Interested Parties across the state, not only stating that EPD will not be following the recent Georgia Court of Appeals ruling to uphold buffer protections for state waters, but that he recommends Local Issuing Authorities and others do the same.

ARK Proceeds with Lawsuit against Rayonier

On July 14, Altamaha Riverkeeper attorneys filed a "Response in Opposition "brief to Rayonier's motion to have the Altamaha Riverkeeper's Clean Water Act citizen suit case against them dismissed. This filing is an important step in the proceedings. Rayonier attorneys will now file a response to ARK's brief. The judge will review the case over the next couple months and make a ruling on the dismissal in the fall. If the judge rules in ARK's favor, the case will proceed to the discovery phase.

Thanks to ARK attorneys Hutton Brown with GreenLaw, Donald Stack with Stack & Associates, P.C. and Nathaniel Hunt with Southern Environmental Law Center for doing a great job in preparing a very strong brief.

ARK Sunset Cruise
Thursday June 12

Sunset over

See PHOTOS from the event

Sign me up for the next cruise

We haven't set a date yet for the next cruise, but it was too much fun not to do it again. And we already have a bunch of folks on the waiting list we were unable to accommodate this time around. If you are interested in joining us next time, send an email to cor@ltamahariverkeeper.org and we'll be sure to let you know when we have the next cruise scheduled.

Dear ARK Friends,

Thanks to all who participated in our sunset river cruise from Hampton Point Marina to Mudcat Charlie's (and back). We had a great group for our four-boat "Armada on the Altamaha" and good cooperation from Mother Nature, with perfect temperatures, a beautiful sunset, light shows from several thunderstorms close enough to dazzle but too distant to threaten and a nearly full moon to guide us home.

Thanks to our intrepid captains - Brooks Good and Paul Christian from Coastal Outdoor Adventures, Michael Gowen from SouthEast Adventures and Phillip Kempton from Captain Phillip's Charters & Tours.

Thanks, too, to the folks at Mudcat Charlie's, SugarMarsh cottages, St. Simons Seafood, BI-LO in Darien and Sweetwater Breweries for their support with food and drink.
