It could be back to the drawing board for Richmond Hill’s wastewater treatment plant since the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) changed the city’s wasteload allocation last week.

City Manager Mike Melton told the city council during a meeting Tuesday night that the EPD revoked the permit on Feb. 8. The EPD was supposed to issue the city a new allocation by Feb. 11, but as of Wednesday, Melton said he had not received it.

Elizabeth Booth, EPD program manager of watershed planning and monitoring division, said Thursday the wasteload allocation was not revoked, but was being re-issued. The old allocation allowed the city to discharge wastewater into two locations in Elbow Swamp.

The new allocation, which was to be issued this week, will only allow discharging at one location, she said.
