Ed Merrifield, president of Potomac Riverkeeper, a group focused on stopping pollution and restoring clean water in the river, said allowing a water permit for this project will allow "a new polluter the right to create a new toxic mixing zone into the Potomac."
The permit being considered would allow up to 400,000 gallons of water a day to be dumped into the Potomac River.
