Pressure shifts to University of Alabama to stop Shepherd Bend Mine

Last night, around 100 people attended the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) public hearing in Sumiton regarding a water pollution permit for Drummond Company’s proposed Shepherd Bend Mine.  Attendees overwhelmingly opposed the strip mine permit, which would allow 29 pollution discharges into the Mulberry Fork daily drinking water source for 200,000 people in greater Birmingham.  Only one person spoke in favor of the mine.
