Notice of Mountain Christian Church Discharge Application Received

MDE Note of Mountain Christian Church Discharge Permit

This just in from the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE).

We have requested the permit application and an informational meeting to discuss the application and permitting process that would allow discharges of 2,400 gallons per day of treated domestic wastewater from the Mountain Christian Church Wastewater Treatment Plant into groundwater via absorption trenches. We feel it would be helpful if Riverkeeper supporters also sent a request in to MDE using the included contact information below.

Send requests to Mrs. Dela Onyemaechi, Chief, Groundwater Discharge Permits Division, at: (410) 537-3783 or 1-800-633-6101.
