Dear Environmental Management Commission:
Alabama’s waters are my home and my playground. I believe citizens have a fundamental right to know when their local streams and rivers are unsafe for swimming, fishing, and other recreation due to sewage spill pollution. Please require wastewater treatment facilities to implement and follow a standard public notification plan in order to quickly and effectively notify the public when there is a sewage spill. That plan should include requirements for posting a notice at the site of the spill and nearby/downstream affected waterways as well as notifying the media, and utilizing email, text messaging, phone calls, & social media to inform people like me who want to know. My family’s health depends upon it.
