Get your comments in ASAP to GA-EDP about the proposed Sabal Trail Albany
compressor station air quality permit: the deadline is Friday August 7th.
Roger Marietta suggested, you can ask for a public hearing, as well.

Anyone who wants to help with that, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t forget to
Governor Deal and sign the petition to him.
