The Mississippi Environmental Quality Permit Board (Board) convened its regular monthly meeting at 9:00 a.m. on April 14, 2015 at the offices of the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality in Jackson. The portion of the April 21 summary of this April 14 Board meeting regarding the discussion of the Board’s action relating to the West Rankin Utility Authority’s (WRUA) permit application is corrected and clarified as follows. The Board did not approve the WRUA permit in closed session. The Board members went into closed session briefly to decide if they needed to go into an executive session to discuss potential legal issues or lawsuits that may arise from the issue. However, they decided there was no need to go into an executive session at that time, so they adjourned the closed session, invited everyone back into the meeting and returned to open session. At that time, after brief discussion while in open session, they voted to issue the WRUA permit.
