Landfill construction dates causing concern in South GA county
DECATUR CO., GA (WALB) -
County leaders are concerned their new landfill cell won't be complete by the time their old one is full
Engineers say it will be full by the end of 2017, several months before the new dump site is scheduled to be finished.
The county administrator anticipated the construction being done in plenty of time but doesn't want to overreact.
"It's not a time at this point to hit the panic button. It is a time to be concerned. But I don't think there's any panic. I think there are some solutions and some options that we will evaluate and certainly we'll look into those," said Decatur County Administrator Alan Thomas.
Thomas hopes construction crews will be able to reduce the building time and have the site ready on time.
