Public to weigh in Ogeechee River pollution

Posted: Updated:
SCREVEN CO., GA (WTOC) -

A public hearing is taking place Tuesday with state regulators over King America Finishing's polluting the Ogeechee River.

The hearing is to get public input to help the officials with the Georgia Environmental Protection Division develop plans for penalizing King America Finishing.

The EPD will review a $1 million consent order that was drawn up in October to address deficiencies the EPD discovered at the Screven County textile manufacturer shortly after the May 2011 fish kill that left 38,000 fish dead in the river.

The public hearing takes place at 7 p.m. at the Effingham County High School in Springfield.
