JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Supreme Court has let stand a ruling against a group of residents who sought to block development of five acres near the construction site of a sand drying plant in Pearl River County.

The Supreme Court declined Thursday to hear appeal.

The Alliance Consulting Group has located a $30 million plant on 30 acres between Nicholson and Picayune to service the oil industry.

At issue was five acres near the industrial site that residents of the Raven Wood subdivision claimed was being flooding because the county allowed the area to be built up to accommodate construction of the plant.

Circuit Judge Prentiss Harrell ruled in 2013 the county did not violate any regulations on use of the five acres. The Appeals Court upheld Harrell’s ruling last December.
