Effingham County Wastewater Plant Update

There's controversy in Effingham County, where the county wants to build a new wastewater treatment plant between Rincon and Springfield. And that's part of the problem. The county wants to build the $15 million to treat sewage. They think having the facility would attract more business.

But Effingham's towns don't like the plan. Guyton, Rincon and Springfield all want to extend their own sewer lines. So they're taking the county to court. The judge ruled the county can keep building. But -not- within half a mile of each city.

The lawyers are trying to work out a compromise. We'll stay on the story and let you know what happens next.
