Illegal Sewage Dumping in Blue Ridge and Morganton

Announcements, News
illegal dumping

BLUE RIDGE, GA – City of Blue Ridge advises citizens to be on the look on for a septic truck performing illegal dumping of sewage in ponds and manholes across Fannin County.

The truck has dumped raw sewage straight from septic tanks in Morganton and in Blue Ridge.

In one reported instance, a flatbed truck with a tank on it dumped the concentrated septic waste into a local pond. However, the city noted that they can’t confirm the truck is a flatbed and wants everyone to be on the lookout for suspicious activity.

Blue Ridge Police Department is actively patrolling any ponds, manholes, sewer ports for suspicious activity. Currently, the culprits appear to dump mainly during low traffic hours, such as Friday nights and on Saturdays.

Due to the concentrated nature of septic waste, it’s costing the city extra money and manhours to process the material. The city fears the illegal dumping could lead to someone getting sick if the toxic waste ends up in someone’s well water.

Be on the lookout for anything suspicious. The city and law enforcement are asking for a good description of the vehicle or a picture if someone can get one.

The city and authorities are asking for help finding these individuals. If you know anything about them, please call City Hall at 706.632.2091 or call 706.455.0768 after hours.

Andrew Breitbart and exposing ACORN

Politics

Andrew Breitbart was a Conservative activist, journalist, author, editor, radio personality and the list goes on. He understood the Left so much so that he knew exactly how to intimidate the Left. Breitbart even referred to John Podesta as his mortal enemy. He also supported the exposure of corruption of ACORN that catalyzed the downfall of its reputation and ensuing bankruptcy. You can watch the documentary, Hating Breitbart, to better understand who he was and what his legacy stands for today. It was reported that he died from natural causes on 1 March 2012, and the peculiar timing of his death has sparked much speculation.
