A popular RV park in Walthall County has applied for a permit with the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality to discharge just over 70,000 gallons of treated wastewater daily into the Bogue Chitto River.

The public has 30 days to request a public hearing on the proposal.
The permit board is seeking information pertaining to the proposed activity including comments from the public in order for its final recommendation to comply but is subject to change based on information received from the public.
