The Tennessee Department of Transportation approved a permit for a new pipeline in Greeneville.

Some have opposed the pipeline, worried about the impact it could have on the environment.

TDOT denied the original pipeline for US Nitrogen because officials thought only US Nitrogen would have access to it. The Industrial Development Board re-submitted the application and certified they will own and control the pipeline and give access to other businesses.

The pipeline has been controversial in the Greeneville area with people worried about the environmental impact and access to the Nolichucky River.

Now that should not surprise anyone. You knew it would go through. Way too much money changing hands.

The Industrial Development Board is a water utility company? With experience in supplying water to corporate heavy industry ? That's a good one. Maybe a lease and manage arrangement for a nominal fee (one dollar per year) can be worked out between owner Greene County IDB and corporate chemical users US Nitrogen and Norway based Yara. All water monitoring to be done by the chemical companies of course.
