ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  High ranking Naval officials will be in Albany Thursday for the first of its kind partnership between Dougherty County and MCLB to provide green energy. 

The 'landfill gas to energy' project will create a pipeline to carry gas produced at the Fleming Gaissert Road landfill to MCLB to be used as energy.

County Administrator Richard Crowdis says it helps cement the relationship between MCLB and the county while helping MCLB cut operating costs. 

"The Marine Corps Logistics Base has been here for over 50 years and we want to keep it another 50 years," said Dougherty County Administrator Richard Crowdis. "And as we know at various periodic times the U.S Department of Defense goes through and tries to reduce costs so the Marine Corp base has to stand on its own and has to provide cost efficiency for the money that's put into it."

Both sides have been working to make the project happen for the last three years.

Major General Carl B. Jensen, the Commanding General of Marine Corps Installations East and other military personnel will be on hand for the event.
