Rayonier Applies for Renewal of Waste Water Discharge Permit
On July 13, 2012 Rayonier submitted an updated application for renewal of its permit to discharge 60 million gallons per day of waste water into the Altamaha River below Jesup. As shown here Rayonier's pollution takes over the Altamaha and changes its waters from magnificent, inviting and clear flowing to pollution laden, foul smelling and disgusting. It does not have to be this way.
State water quality regulations state that all waters shall be free from material related to municipal, industrial or other discharges which produce turbidity, color, odor or other objectionable conditions which interfere with legitimate water uses. ARK needs your help to stop Rayonier's pollution and take back the Altamaha below Jesup for everyone.
There are many ways to get involved.
View the video below and send it to everyone you know.
Support ARK's efforts to improve the permit by donating today.
Please help us match a generous $35,000 donation of Rayonier stock to clean up Rayonier's pollution. Your tax-deductible donation to ARK's Rayonier fund will support our work to strengthen the new discharge permit and clean up the Altamaha below Jesup.
