JZ Knight responds to developer
claims that RSE sewer is overtapped
Yelm, WA. � JZ Knight, renowned channel and founder of Ramtha?s School of Enlightenment (RSE) (www.ramtha.com), The Original School of Consciousness and Energy, based in Yelm, Washington, responded to allegations made by local land developers Doug Bloom and Steve Chamberlain in the November 7 edition of the Nisqually Valley News claiming that JZ Knight ?doesn?t have the sewage capacity to accommodate the thousands of people who attend events at her Ramtha School of Enlightenment.?
Knight responded that Bloom?s and Chamberlain?s allegations are their attempts to retaliate in response to Knight?s lawsuit successfully challenging five residential subdivisions, including a 198-lot subdivision proposed by Bloom and Chamberlain. A Thurston County judge issued a final judgment last week, reversing the City of Yelm?s approval of the Bloom/Chamberlain subdivision and four other subdivisions based on the City?s erroneous interpretation of state law requiring proof of an adequate water supply at the time of final subdivision approval.
A spokesperson for Knight stated that ?RSE?s septic system and special use permit are up-to-date and in full compliance with permitting conditions as public records indicate. For Bloom and Chamberlain to assert otherwise, is a damaging statement that is not based on any fact. RSE?s system has been designed and operated based on professional engineering standards and permitting conditions and poses no threat to the public or the environment.?
The spokesperson added, ?RSE has never exceeded the licensed capacity of its special use permit and has never even come close to it. In fact, only rarely would 1,000 attendees be on site for any event. Normal event attendance is commonly somewhere between 200-600 people.?
The spokesperson continued, ?Government inspectors visit the RSE site regularly and vouch for all systems installed on the premises that are for serving members of the public attending RSE events. This has been the case for nearly 20 years.?
In response to Bloom and Chamberlain?s claims that ?a Large On-Site Sewage System (LOSS) on the property of JZ Knight is a non-conforming system operating well outside the original design parameters,? Knight?s spokesperson stated that ?RSE?s septic system is operating well within its design parameters, is under constant supervision and monitoring, functions as designed, is pumped at regular intervals, and is inspected and reported on regularly.?
Knight, one of the greatest minds of the 21st Century and recently featured on CNN?s Larry King Live, concludes that the reporting of unsubstantiated claims and hearsay without a thorough and accurate investigation of the facts is a severe disservice to readers of the Nisqually Valley News and the general public.
