JSA never forewarned public of looming EPA compliance issue

By KENNETH CULP Paducah

EDITOR:

On March 20, 2014, I attended the Joint Sewer Agency's Wallace Park project informational meeting. This project, among others, is because the JSA Paducah sewer system was forced to comply with the decades-old "Clean Water Act." The JSA was fined and ordered to comply after millions had been spent on the Paducah sewer plant, meaning the old plant was out of compliance when the JSA was formed.

This information should have been prominent in the "feasibility study" that helped form the JSA, but as per my two-volume copy, I've yet to find it and no one from the city spoke up. I don't think it was ethical to force county homes onto such a system as the JSA did in Concord. Using an incomplete feasibility study just to get sewer customers is sad. I can only conclude this is Paducah's way of doing business.
