The Waste Water Treatment Authority (WWTA) of Hamilton county has proposed a sewage treatment facility to be located on Savannah creek in Ooltewah. The proposed sewage plant will be located off Mahan Gap Road bordering Savannah creek, the effluent will be pumped to the river somewhere around Sequoya. The WWTA has a long history of overflows and spills, most recently on the Champions Golf Course, also in this area. There will eventually be spills at the proposed facility and the raw sewage will find its way into Savannah creek and then to Wolftever, and then to the main Lake.

Thankfully we have county commissioners that listened and the funding request was voted down until public input could be gathered. The public meetings will start this Thursday 10/11 @ 5:30PM in front of the old fire station at 9100 Snow Hill Road. I would encourage you to attend if you want to be heard.

If you live in this area you have multiple reasons to be concerned. If you enjoy the lake you also have multiple reasons to be concerned.

Here are several links with more information and a petition you can sign opposing the site:
