Environmental group complains about SC pollution

CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - An environmental group has filed a complaint with a federal agency about pollution at a Santee Cooper plant in Conway.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported the Southern Environmental Law Center filed with the Environmental Protection Agency and others on Thursday.

The environmental group says the state-owned utility is violating the Clean Water Act by allowing pollution at its Grainger electric plant to seep into the Waccamaw River.

Mollie Gore with Santee Cooper says there is no indication pollution is moving into the river.

Gore says the latest complaint is similar to allegations in a pair of lawsuits the group has filed about the Conway plant.

Frank Holleman with the center says it could sue in federal court if Santee Cooper does not stop the pollution.
