Wilbros EPD Hearing Set for May 12
The Georgia Office of State Administrative Hearings confirms that a hearing of Wilbros’ appeal of the administrative order issued by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division against the facility will start on May 12.
A spokesman for the office says the hearing will take place from May 12 through May 14 in Atlanta.
A judge in the Georgia Office of State Administrative Hearings will hear the appeal.
The Georgia EPD issued its administrative order in January, stating that Wilbros had violated the state’s Solid Waste Management and Water Quality Acts multiple times.
It called on Wilbros to stop receiving waste and begin closure proceedings.
Wilbros appealed the administrative order, calling the EPD’s order unlawful and disputing the agency’s allegations of permit violations.
Enforcement of the order is put on hold until the appeal is ruled on.
