SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - A neighborhood meeting is planned in the Savannah area where a planned sewage treatment plant has prompted concerns from the Savannah Botanical Gardens.

The Savannah Morning News reports (https://bit.ly/1mmzRWw) that the concerns will likely be a topic at the Bacon Park neighborhood meeting at 6 p.m. Monday at Speedwell United Methodist Church.

Botanical garden chairwoman Betty Ward said about 70 percent of funding required to maintain and operate the botanical gardens comes from weddings.

Ward says any nasty odors could drive that business away, and “it could totally ruin the garden.”

City staffers have sought to reassure gardens officials that the plant — planned for the area of the Bacon Park Golf Course — isn’t expected to add to smells from a lift station that already operates in the area.
