A review by an environmental watchdog group has found that the number of Alabama facilities violating water pollution regulations has nearly tripled since 2006. The review also shows that enforcement by the State Department of Environmental Management dropped from 1,408 in 2006 to 22 in 2008. The review was conducted by David Ludder, who was the agency’s chief lawyer from 1984 to 1988. He was scheduled to present the findings last month to the Alabama Environmental Commission, which oversees ADEM.
