Mayor Reed's Technical Advisory Group (TAG) thanks the new commissioner of the Department of Watershed Management (DWM), Kishia Powell, and her dedicated staff for meeting with and taking the group on a tour of the R. M. Clayton Treatment Plant on June 23. The purpose of the tour was for the attendees to learn about the plant and its operations to gain a better understanding of the facility and its relationship with the CSO mini-treatment facilities. The tour was helpful as the group assesses and makes recommendations to DWM to address the sewer issues in Memorial Park.  The next meeting of the TAG, Mayor's office, Council Member Adrean's office and DWM will take place in July.

Please join AMPC and Trees Atlanta to pull this invasive species away from the elderberry, ninebark and silky dogwood so that these plants can receive more sunlight to continue spreading their roots.
