The nonprofit environmental group visited the company and discussed ways to comply with the Clean Water Act to keep the sealant materials from flowing into a creek which flows 1,000 feet into the Chattahoochee River.
“On a follow-up visit we discovered that they were actively dumping this black oily material straight into the stream,” Ulseth said. “It was a large volume flow coming out of the storm drain. They knew what the requirements of the law were and they just blatantly dumped it into the stream.”
The riverkeeper is working with M&K Warehouses, which owns the property, to clean up the toxic mess.
