Chehaw chosen as new mulch storage site

ARMY Corps Chehaw Mulch Storage

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Army Corps of Engineers has brought truck loads full of mulch and wood chips to store at Chehaw.

The park has officially become the Corp’s holding site for 30,000 square feet of mulch.

The mulch is used in recovery efforts after Hurricane Michael.

Not only does it give the Corps a site big enough to hold the mulch, but they have to pay Chehaw to store it there, helping Chehaw make a profit.

“They will us it for composting, use it for beautification. They’ll use it for plain ole capping of an insert and also reclamation of a sand pit. It will be used for years. They’re reclaiming that area. So, yeah, just all around it’s a win, win for everyone,” said Dave Palmer, the public affairs specialist with the Corps.

Chehaw will be responsible for the mulch now.
