A Macon company seeking a judges order to continue putting waste into the Macon Water Authoritys sewer system has dropped the case.
Aerospace Defense Coatings of Georgia, which was seeking an injunction through a hearing scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, dropped the case Tuesday morning instead. Electronic records in the Bibb County Superior Court clerks office show no sign that the Macon Water Authority had been served with the original filing from Friday.
The company, located near the Middle Georgia Regional Airport, sought an injunction to continue discharging 15,000 gallons of treated wastewater a day into the sewer system while it pursued a new permit with the authority.
The authority ordered the company to stop using the sewer system because its applications were incomplete and deficient. Authority attorney Lonzy Edwards said that in the last seven months the company twice failed to test and monitor its discharge and twice exceeded pollutant levels, which he declined to specify.
The authority is working with the company to bring it into compliance under the same standards dictated by previous permits.
Theyre going to have to make sure theyre doing what their permit requires, Edwards said.
The company plates, anodizes and paints metals.
Company attorney Charles E. Cox Jr. was not immediately available for comment.
