A proposed wastewater facility from Dickson County, TN would dump up to 12 MILLION GALLONS or more per day of treated sewage into the streams of Tennessee.

Some of the most biologically diverse rivers and streams in North America with over 50 species of freshwater mussels and 151 fish species is at RISK. Starting in Lick Creek and ultimately the Duck River of Tennessee.

These are some of the cleanest streams in the United States and would affect not only the streams and water life, but also the springs, wells, drinking water, farming, and much more in the surrounding areas.

The proposed sewage plant from WADC (Water Authority of Dickson County) has an alarming amount of sewage scheduled to come from neighboring counties. 94% to be exact would be dumped into someone else's county, Beautiful Hickman County. Leaving the problem to someone else and poisoning this land forever.

The sewage, plant, and pipes would further destroy the beautiful country side with an unmanaged development. Harming over 4,193.7 acres of farm land with current studies showing that the waste will have dangerous PPcps levels no matter how small. Even low amounts will affect children, elderly, and those with chronic diseases. Further, most greens, carrots, tomotoes, and peppers will be affected by PPcps levels.

Agriculture businesses will be decimated in the area.

Lick Creek and the Duck River often flood which will further push the sewage into wells, springs, and fields. We all need to poop, but it shouldn't be in our gardens, hiking trails, and drinking water.

This is critical as the number of natural springs and wells that residents count on for their clean drink water is significant, further putting the citizens are risk from contamination.

Finally so many families for generations have loved spending time on Lick Creek and the Duck River.

Even today you'll find the citizens enjoying the beauty of this remarkable nature which is an incredible natural benefit for better mental health.

So much is at stake.

Please sign the petition to stand with us against this horrible plan.

For the sake of concerned citizens I'm asking that you do everything in your power to stop this.
