Upgrade Required

To Meet Needs

Of US Nitrogen

Plant Being Built

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rural Development agency has provided funding to the Old Knoxville Highway Water District in Mohawk for water distribution system extensions.

A low-interest loan of $3.25 million will fund the addition of 40,000 linear-feet of 16-inch water line from the existing system along Pruitt Road.

The extension will serve the massive water requirements of the US Nitrogen plant now under construction and provide capacity for future business growth in the Mosheim area.

The US Nitrogen plant, off Pottertown Road, will require 800 gallons of water per minute, around-the-clock and seven days a week, for its cooling tower, company officials have stated.

USDA representatives and Greene County officials met on Tuesday at the Greene County Partnership to sign official documents related to the funding.

"At USDA, we believe it is critical that communities across the country have reliable, clean and safe water," Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a news release.

Locally, USDA Rural Development (RD) State Director Bobby Goode announced federal funding for two water projects in Northeast Tennessee.

Combined, the Old Knoxville Highway Water District in Greene County and the town of Jonesborough will receive more than $6.2 million in affordable loan and grant financing from the agency.

"Safe, reliable water is vital to the future of every healthy community," Goode said in the news release.

"Making these infrastructure investments puts people to work now, and it lays the foundation for improved safety and sustainable growth in this area through the next generation."

In Jonesborough, improvements will expand the town's capacity to meet the need of business and residential customers for the next 20 years of projected growth.

A low-interest loan of $2.2 million and a grant of $815,600 will be used to construct a wastewater pipe from the existing treatment plant.

In all, Vilsack announced that nationwide 43 water and wastewater projects in 32 states will be funded.
