Effingham Co. receives settlement payment over Ogeechee fish kill


WTOC has been working to obtain the numbers on the out-of-court settlement between Effingham County and King America Finishing, and on Wednesday, those numbers finally came in.

Documents WTOC obtained show that King America Finishing paid $49,000 in the settlement for damages related to the Ogeechee River fish kill. It appears the attorney for Effingham County was paid $19,000 out of that amount, leaving only $30,000 for the county itself. 

There is no word yet on how this money will be used.
