We explored the Rayonier discharge into the Altamaha a bit and discussed manufacturing in the US in previous posts. The Altamaha Riverkeeper and Georgia River Network have provided me with some great source material. I have read through some of the documents and have learned a lot over the last week. The very first thing I would like each of my readers to do is go to the Rayonier website. Watch the video at the top of the page in its entirety. There have been very few actual comments posted so before I go any further with this discussion please take a moment to watch the video, read my previous posts and review the material related to the Rayonier discharge on the Altamaha Riverkeepers site.
I would next ask that you compare the video from Rayonier website and what is said to what is actually happening at the Jesup plant and to this news video. If you were a Paddle Georgia participant this year please comment on your impressions while paddling through this area. I have more to share but I would like some dialog to be generated by this entry before continuing the discussion. My hope is that this discussion will lead us to raised awareness and result in a focused, informed letter writing campaign to EPD, Rayonier and others to clean up the discharge.
