Are you telling me that this sucker is nuclear?* I’m not talking about time machines, missiles, or the iPhone 6. Is Plant Scherer creating nuclear contamination? The Macon law firm of Gautreaux & Adams believes so. Per the Macon Telegraph:
Brian Adams, a partner in Gautreaux & Adams, said Wednesday that the lawsuits target the plant’s operator and primary owner, Georgia Power, as well as other owners of the plant. About half the cases also will name the nearby Vulcan Materials rock quarry, he said.
The lawsuits relate to environmental contamination such as uranium, chromium and arsenic in air or water, Adams said.
Adams declined to share further details before a news conference Thursday morning in Atlanta. The suits will be filed in State Court of DeKalb County.
Dozens of Juliette residents have found unsafe levels of uranium in their well water or airborne radon in their homes. Some of them have been diagnosed with uranium poisoning.
