Cahaba River Society's comments on ADEM Director Lance LeFleur's job performance - Cahaba River Society

The Alabama Environmental Management Commission is asking for feedback about Director Lance LeFleur’s job performance as the leader of the Department of Environmental Management (ADEM).

Cahaba River Society has submitted our comments.

In summary, it is our experience that the ADEM Director’s performance over the past year has been inadequate to achieve ADEM’s mission and to protect the people of Alabama from environmental harm. We provide three examples and describe those in greater detail in our letter:

  • The Director has not advocated to increase ADEM’s inadequate budget
  • ADEM’s Eastern Area Landfill permit review and approval endangers public health
  • ADEM’s enforcement policies not deter violations
