Oconee County Paid Hauler To Dispose Of Solid Waste From Sewer Plant After The Plant Stopped Producing Solid Waste

Financial Records Show Discrepancy

Even though the Oconee County Calls Creek wastewater plant stopped producing solids at least a year ago, the county continued to pay a company for hauling those solids to a landfill through at least the end of April of this year, according to financial records of the county’s Utility Department.

Solids, also referred to as sludge, are removed from the raw sewage in a wastewater plant as part of the treatment process and then disposed of, generally at a landfill.
