People are still sick and dying in Waycross, and answers are still few, but now there’s increasing help, and organization at a meeting next Tuesday. Remember wastewater from the Waycross SevenOut SuperFund site was sent to the Pecan Row Landfill in Valdosta, and we could have similar sites here, too. Helping Waycross is helping everyone deal with toxic chemicals. -jsq
Facebook event, Meeting Announcement – Tuesday Evening, January 6, 2014,
You are needed at this meeting to make sure we continue to get the truth and to protect our children and community!
Over the last year, our group and the Satilla Riverkeepers have been working with GreenLaw, a non-profit Environmental firm, to give us an honest evaluation of the contamination in Waycross. Well, we have Contamination, but now we need to know that CSX and AGL are doing all they can do to clean up these toxic chemicals. Recent documents indicate they are not. So, GreenLaw would like to bring in Earthjustice, a national environmental law organization, to see if they can further assist the community. Additionally, we will have other experts in attendance. They would like to take a tour of Waycross, the canal system, and meet people from the community.
Join us for this important meeting ”protecting our community’s health!
