Putnam County Residents, we desperately need your support !!!!
Please show your support by filling out the form below, then clicking on the Sign and Send button. Your protest and opinion regarding dumping biosolids (toxic human sewage) from Volusia county on Putnam county wetlands is invaluable. Without your help, toxic waste could flow into our waters and pollute our water source. This pollution could result in massive fish kills, water that is unsafe to drink or swim in and create an environment that no one would want to be around. Additional studies have shown the negative impact on the value of nearby properties.

Dear Mr. Thomas Kallemeyn and DEP Permitting Program Staff,
As the DEP Northeast Florida Permitting Program Administrator, I am writing directly to you as a concerned Putnam County Resident, to ask that you oppose Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Permit Application Number FLAB07018003 by Jennigirl LLC of New Smyrna Beach.
Mr. Laurence Downes, Manager of Jennigirl LLC has previously been found in violation of dredging and filling a wetland without a valid permit (OGC File #17-0938). He is currently once again in violation of dredging and filling a wetland in Putnam County at 373 Old Highway 17 in Crescent City, Florida without a valid permit, in violation of Section 373.430, Florida Statutes and Rule 62-330.020, Florida Administrative Code. He has shown that he cannot be trusted to comply with the law, given his past history.
I oppose the dumping of human sewage/sludge in the form of Class B Biosolids on a property with wetlands in Putnam County, Florida. Class B Biosolids sewage/sludge may contain dangerous heavy metals, carcinogens, radioactive waste, neurotoxins, disease causing bacteria and antibiotic resistant pathogens. It is basically made up of any waste that gets poured down your drain and septic, which includes medical waste, industrial waste and more. This is a highly controversial issue that has landed itself in our backyards. Many counties and cities in Florida have already banned the dumping of biosolids in their backyards. Townships all over the country are desperately trying to stop the spread of this hazardous, concentrated human waste.
Please do not allow the dumping of Biosolids from Volusia County to occur on this Putnam County property containing wetlands, where this toxic waste could flow into our waters and pollute our water source. This pollution could result in massive fish kills, water that is unsafe to drink or swim in and create an environment that no one would want to be around. Additional studies have shown the negative impact on the value of nearby properties.
Please add this opposition letter to this application’s file. Please protect Putnam county residents and the future of Putnam children from pollutants caused by Class B Biosolids by rejecting Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Permit Application Number FLAB07018003.
Thank you for your time.
