US Nitrogen's Water Permits Draw
Fiery Debate At Thursday Hearing
Sun Photo By O.J. Early

Britton Dotson, deputy director of the Division of Water Resources for the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, speaks to the crowd assembled at West Greene High School on Thursday night to offer comments on US Nitrogen’s revised water permit applications. Listening at left is US Nitrogen Plant Manager Justin Freeark. Looking on, in the foreground, are other TDEC officials present for the public hearing.

It's a matter of trust, or lack thereof.

Many of the 28 people who made comments Thursday night at a public hearing held at West Greene High School focusing on pending revised water use permits for the US Nitrogen project fear the operation will harm the environment, in particular the Nolichucky River.

Others who spoke stated they believe that US Nitrogen will take proper safeguards to protect the integrity of the watershed, and said the manufacturer of liquid ammonium nitrate will provide a needed economic boost to Greene County for the jobs it will provide. There seemed to be little middle ground among the crowd of about 200 that attended the public hearing, which was sponsored by the state Department of Environment and Conservation's (TDEC) Division of Water Resources.
