Letter to U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Confirms GDOT Has Failed to Study Dobbins Mountain

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.
