Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation would prevent a permit or permit modification from being issued for a solid waste facility or coal combustion residual landfill if it was located within three miles of a blackwater river. Legislation defines "blackwater river" as one being wholly contained within the borders of this state and originating on the coastal plain, and which flows directly into the ocean. The Satilla River is the targeted river. This bill would not apply to any municipal solid waste disposal facility for which a permit was issued and was operating during or prior to 2019.
