The Chattooga County Board of Public Health has filed a lawsuit against a Chattooga County man for not installing a septic tank on his property located on Oakhill-Alpine Road in the Lyerly area. The suit was filed on behalf of the Public Health Board on Friday of last week by Chattooga County attorney Chris Corbin in Chattooga County Superior Court. The Health Board filed the lawsuit seeking an injunction from a Superior Court judge to force Richard Flowers of 1861 Oakhill-Alpine Road to install a “properly functioning septic system” on his property. Sources with the county say that the issue has been ongoing for over a year and that Mr. Flowers has had adequate time to comply with the county’s requirements for a septic system on his property.
