Love this beautiful video about the amazing Altamaha. It is to protect this majestic river and the invaluable Georgia coast that we must continue to make sure that no more coal ash ever comes to the Broadhurst Landfill.

Selenium: This common element is an essential nutrient, and too little, as well as too much, can be harmful. Selenium is ingested by eating plants and in drinking water.
Extremely high levels of selenium have been found to accumulate in fish and amphibians living in coal ash-contaminated waterways and wetlands. As confirmed by laboratory studies, selenium accumulation in fish and frogs is linked to physical abnormalities including severe developmental abnormalities and deformities and has been held responsible for exterminating some local fish populations.
Livestock that graze on plants with very high selenium levels exhibit a dramatic neurologic disease known as “blind staggers.” Symptoms include depressed appetite, impaired vision and staggering in circles and can ultimately lead to paralysis and death.
Chronic exposure to high levels in humans has been shown to cause lack of mental alertness and listlessness, as well as discoloration of the skin and deformities of the nails.

We will keep reminding you how unintentionally heinous it would be of our community to ever agree to accept any more coal ash into our wetlands solid waste facility, Broadhurst Landfill. There are already 800,000 tons of it out there that we didn't agree to.
The horrors of water contamination from coal residuals are terrifying and poisoning communities all over the planet. We beseech you to acknowledge and remember that.
