Clean air, clean water, water conservation? Do you really care, or do you just care about collecting fees and tax wiping us out? Seriously, look at the facts.

Are you kidding? We have one of the best water systems in Georgia. I understand they have a wonderful test program going on where lot's of clean fresh rainwater is being distributed to Arbor Station. Isn't that considerated and innovative? What more could you want?

Really, how is it they prevent rainwater from turning into storm water?

Do they now have a detention pond? Retention? What are they doing about Heritage Valley on Septic and Arbor Station on city, mixing together through the public drainage easement, eventually reaching our drinking water supply?

Fresh rainwater after its traveled amongst the concrete isn't fresh, when it is carrying dirt, grime from all the cars up there? I would love to hear the innovative strategy they have now.

I am serious. I would like to know how you are taking rain water from Stewart Mill Chapel hill road, the busiest corridor in Douglasville, sending it through Arbor Station, without a detention pond.
I have the storm basin maps. I don't see a detention pond. Where is it?

I am glad the governor is taking a stand about cleaning up the air quality. Douglasville ranks 9 out of 100, with 1 being the worst.
