Take Action to End Sewage Pollution in Uniontown

Take a minute to support healthy communities and clean streams.  Join our partner group Black Belt Citizens Fighting for Health & Justice in asking the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) to demand a state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant for Uniontown, Alabama.  For years, the Uniontown community and its downstream neighbors along Cottonwood Creek and Big Prairie Creek in the Black Warrior River basin, and along Freetown Creek and Chilatchee Creek in the Alabama River basin, have suffered exposure to raw and partially treated sewage as a result of ADEM’s failure to demand proper upkeep and operation of the failing Uniontown sewage treatment system.

TAKE ACTION: Please email ADEM Director Lance LeFleur ([email protected]) and ADEM Water Division Chief Glenda Dean ([email protected]). Tell them to not approve building more sprayfields. Ask them to help the City of Uniontown locate funding for the construction of a state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant. Tell them to encourage and support in any way the construction of a mechanical treatment plant for the City of Uniontown that will end the chronic water pollution problems in their community and protect public health.  Learn more:
