For those that missed it yesterday morning, Cartersville Ranch attorney Henry Parkman outlined several issues (gross waste of taxpayer money, environmental damage, etc.) with the Georgia Department of Transportation’s proposed 411 Connector, Route D-VE.
Listed below is a letter from Cartersville Ranch, LLC attorney Henry Parkman to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service regarding Dobbins Mountain. To date, GDOT has STILL not studied the mountain for potential acidic drainage issues; nor has GDOT recommended a mitigation plan to contain any harmful runoff.
Interestingly, the letter notes that GDOT is well-aware of acidic drainage issues on other state road projects (read example listed by Parkman), yet GDOT has failed to test Dobbins Mountain’s acidic soil and geology. It’s a very interesting, worthwhile read about the potential environmental problem facing Bartow County and Cartersville.
