Company admits to breaking environmental law in Georgia

Some Environmental Protection Agency and Georgia Department of Natural Resources investigations end in more than just civil penalties. In some cases, violations of an environmental law result in criminal penalties. Individuals can end up spending time in prison, and companies can end up paying hefty fines.

About the EPA's ROE for protecting the environment

What is an ROE? Georgia businesses and developers may need to know the answer to that question. It stands for the Report on the Environment done by the Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA compiles certain data on the environment as part of its ongoing mission of protecting the environment.

Dry cleaning and protecting the environment can go together

The Environmental Protection Agency, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the state of Georgia have all issued regulations and cautions regarding the use of dry cleaning chemicals. Not only could they cause health issues for those exposed, but they can also harm the environment. That might make it odd to say that dry cleaning and protecting the environment can go together.

Water pollution is an issue in many Georgia towns

With the advances in technology that have occurred in recent decades, ensuring that what comes out of the tap in every home in the country will not harm anyone should not be an issue. Unfortunately, that clear glass of water from the faucet could be deceptive. A recent study indicates that water pollution is an issue in no fewer than 30 water systems here in Georgia.

Common dry cleaning chemical could be hazardous to your health

Many Georgia residents take their clothes, winter coats and bed comforters, among other things, to the dry cleaner without thinking about the chemicals involved in the process. They simply count on dry cleaners to get out stains while cleaning their items. 

Georgia Power accused of causing water pollution

At first, environmental groups supported Georgia Power's decision to close down 29 of its toxic ponds. Then, the Sierra Club notified the power plant that it plans to file a lawsuit alleging that violations of the federal Clean Water Act may cause dangerous water pollution. Part of the controversy arose because the Sierra Club claims that the power plant does not have the proper permits to remove the contaminated water from the ponds.
