Greene County board resubmits pipeline plan

Posted: Updated:

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - An eastern Tennessee county has asked the state again for permits that would allow US Nitrogen to build miles-long pipelines to and from the Nolichucky River.

The Greene County Industrial Development Board voted Friday to resubmit an application requesting the Tennessee Department Of Transportation to allow the board to place a double-pipeline along state and county right of ways from the area of the US Nitrogen plant to the Nolichucky River.

The pipeline would supply industries in Midway with raw water directly from the river and return wastewater to the river.

The Greeneville Sun reported (http://bit.ly/1mR2EEqhttp://bit.ly/1mR2EEq ) that regulators rejected a previous request for permits because they concluded that only US Nitrogen would benefit from the project. The state requires applicants to show the project will benefit the greater public.
