[10] Notification letter to Atlanta's Mayor Kasim Reed

LINK:  A "MUST READ  Notification letter to Atlanta's Mayor Kasim Reed
This letter to Mayor Kasim Reed briefly describes deficiencies with Atlanta's wastewater tunnel projects and was written on behalf of three citizen groups by attorney Hal Wright.


The letter notifies Mayor Reed that Atlanta’s continued failure to obtain permits which are required by environmental regulations is unnecessarily threatening Atlanta’s present and future water resources.
 
After briefly summarizing relevant law, Mr. Wright explains how Atlanta’s position is untenable because it relies on a regulatory interpretation by the EPA which has already been discredited by the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.


The letter concludes with urging Mayor Reed to do “the right thing” by obtaining regulatory clarity, not from the EPA, but rather from the Court (Judge Thrash).
