[ARCHIVED] The City of Dothan's Statement Regarding the Suit Filed by Attorney General Luther Strange

“Today, the City of Dothan received a notice that the State of Alabama has filed a complaint concerning the number of sewer violations reported over the past several years. The City of Dothan looks forward to responding to the State’s inquiry and providing information demonstrating the City’s commitment to overhauling our aging sewer system in order to provide a fully safe and healthy environment for our citizens. As a progressive City, we are very proud of the work that has been done over the past few years to resolve a sewer issue that took decades to create. To date, the City of Dothan has either spent or has committed to spend over $100 million on our sewer system, which includes $40 million at Little Choctawhatchee Wastewater Treatment Plant and decommissioning of the Beaver Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant, $41 million at Omussee Wastewater Treatment Plant, and $19 million to upgrade the City’s sewer pipes. We look forward to quickly resolving the States complaint, which we hope finally brings an end to an enforcement process that began with EPA’s Administrative Order of Consent in 2012.” Mayor Mike Schmitz
