Federal Court Rules in Favor of Coosa Riverkeeper

A federal court rules in favor of Coosa Riverkeeper and the Southern Environmental Law Center. The companies can proceed with claims against the Oxford Tull C. Allen Wastewater Treatment Plant on Choccolocco Creek. Coosa Riverkeeper monitors Choccolocco Creek for its popular swim guide program about one mile downstream of the Oxford sewer plant and has issued water quality alerts for E. coli, chlorine and unpermitted discharges of formaldehyde in 4 of 9 weeks this summer. Coosa Riverkeeper Frank Chitwood says clean water is especially critical during this time of year when so many families and visitors view the creek as a destination spot and no one should worry about getting sick.
