$115 million earmarked for McClellan Cleanup

Anniston Mayor Chip Howell, Vice Chairman of the Joint Powers Authority at Mcclellan finalized an agreement with the Army Thursday to provide approximately $151 million to complete the environmental cleanup at McClellan.

Howell said the final total on what the Army is providing for McClellan’s cleanup is not yet known but in the end it will be more than $200 million, including previously received cleanup money. Congressman Mike Rogers, joined Alabama’s two senators in Washington for the signing of the agreement .The Environmental Services Cooperative Agreement (ESCA) combines what the Army had previously committed to cleaning up other areas of the fort and the recent commitment of $151 million for the portion of McClellan known as the Bravo area.  The money will be used to remove unexploded ordnance and other environmental contamination remaining from McClellan’s days as a military base.

Woman killed in Pell City Wreck 

A Pell City  woman was killed Thursday afternoon in a head-on collision involving a car and cement truck. The accident happened shortly before 3 p.m. along Industrial Park Drive in Pell City. St. Clair County Coroner Mike Pepple identified the victim as  60 year old Orvelina McCoy Jordan, of Pell City. The victim was driving a Mazda 626, which collided head-on with the cement truck.  Alabama State Troopers are still investigating the accident.  


Water War Escalating 

Alabama's congressional delegation complained Thursday, in person, to Army Secretary Pete Geren that the Army Corps of Engineers is not fairly allocating water between Georgia and Alabama.  The ongoing interstate dispute has become increasingly political, with elected officials in both states getting more involved and taking their complaints to higher authorities.  Alabama Senator Richard Shelby said that they basically told the secretary and his staff that the delegation felt the corps was not being fair to Alabama and that Georgia was getting more than their share, especially in the Atlanta area, while Alabama parching and burning, and that the delegation thought it was the responsibility of the corps to be equitable about it.  A key issue is the level of Allatoona Lake north of Atlanta. Alabama officials contend that the corps is not releasing enough water from the area to flow downstream into the Alabama/Coosa/Tallapoosa river basin. The water system is key for drinking water, navigation, recreation, and hydroelectric power.  Geren is the top Army official at the Pentagon and his office oversees the Army Corps of Engineers. Shelby said Geren also was scheduled to meet with Georgia's congressional delegation later on Thursday.  A representative of the corps' Mobile office said Wednesday in a conference call that releases from Allatoona were likely to be reduced further by Sept. 30 because of concerns about a multiyear drought.  Eight of Alabama's nine members of Congress attended the meeting with Geren. Shelby and Sessions said the show of force is a sign that the delegation, Republicans and Democrats, are backing Gov. Bob Riley, who has argued that the Army shorted Alabama by 18 billion gallons.  The fight over how to allocate water in the two river basins that affect Alabama, Georgia and Florida started about 17 years ago and has involved lengthy court fights and legislative battles.
