the way to the coast, a distance o approximately 40 miles.The Clean Water Act (CWA) and the regulations o theState o Georgia require that each National Pollutant Dis-charge Elimination System (NPDES) must achieve water qual-ity standards established under the CWA, including the staterules requiring that water discharged into a river must blendwith the existing water in a non-oensive manner.Section 303 o the CWA urther states the standards shallprotect the public health or welare and enhance the qualityo water standards adopted by the Environmental ProtectionDivision (EPD).During 10 years o eld observations and data collectionin the river, ARK has documented the smelly dark water leav-ing Rayonier in trails 30-40 miles down the river.In 2001, ARK challenged Rayonier's discharge permit, al-leging its efuent did not meet CWA standards and in 2002 thecompany entered into a settlement with ARK to resolve theproblem.Unortunately, little or no progress has been evident in thesix years since then, leaving ARK with no choice but to suethe company in order to clean up the problem."Rayonier has not reduced the dark efuent into the riversince the 2002 agreement. Rayonier's own monitoring reportsindicate a very high level o color discharge--a level consid-ered high even or the paper and pulp mill industry. The prob-lem is not improving and we have negotiated long enough,"said ARK Executive Director Deborah Sheppard."The clean-up o wastewater rom Rayonier has stalled;we must get it moving again. We cannot allow continuedpollution o our rivers when we have so little water in themalready due to the drought. The EPD has allowed this degra-dation o one o our most important waterways to go on artoo long. We expect the courts to understand the gravity o the situation and to require a aster remedy," stated JustineThompson, Executive Director o GreenLaw.A 60-day letter gives the company time to respond withaction beore a suit is led in Superior Court. GreenLawexpects this letter to accelerate the clean-up process on theAltamaha River so that sh and people can once again use itas a clean resource or ood and recreation.
