Will Robinson, a senior journalism major at the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, published an exclusive article for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He wrote this story as part of a directed study with the James M. Cox. Jr. Institute for Journalism Innovation, Management and Leadership.
The article, “UGA to close hazardous waste facility, pay civil penalty to feds,” focuses on UGA’s Hazardous Materials Treatment Facility, which is being decommissioned. During inspections in 2014 and 2015, the Environmental Protection Agency found a number of violations at the facility, from improper labeling to radioactive waste that had been held longer than the allowable limit.
