Augusta gets fined for landfill violations

CSRA News

There’s a mess to clean up at Augusta’s landfill.

The city has been cited by the state Environmental Protection Division for three violations.

The violations are for leaks that could threaten nearby water ways, and for not properly covering up the trash at the landfill.

The city has entered into a consent order with EPD, and agrees to fix the leaks, and properly cover the garbage.

The city must also pay a four thousand dollar fine.
