One of my good friends is a Manager up there.
He told me there fixing to be sued for pouring gas and other
things down the main water drain up there.
If that is true lowes should pay to clean it up.
I used to work up there and i could tell you how much paint
we poured out down the main drain.I told Sr,Managers that is not right but they said pour it down the drain anyway.
I am glad to see someone is going to do something about it.
All of us use that water and drink that water.

You are such an idiot! They don't pou stuff down the drain. They dispose of it properly. And I doubt you ever worked up there. Nor are you friends with the manager. Nice try tho.

NO paint or any other chemical should ever be poured into the drains. These chemicals must be disposed of with a manifest from cradle to grave. Check the EPA strict guidelines. If this actually happened you can contact the state and federal EPA, they will investigate. Let us know what happens?

Typical piece of trash from Newport:

1. Get job.

2. Get fired from said job.

3. Like a gutless coward hide behind a fake name and badmouth the place you were fired from on social media.

No wonder no real business wants to set up shop here.

It is disposed of properly. And FYI Lowes is not in the habit of just throwing paint away or pouring it out at all. If something is mixed wrong they see THAT color at a discounted price. Just like Wal Mart does.

Is it not possible for you to talk without putting other posters down? I was making a point. People want to cry about something being dumped down a drain or pills being flushed because it gets in the water supply but are to stupid to realize what is in the toliet to start with. And if you think your precious bottled water is any safer than tap water you are dumber than you prove to be every time you mKe a post.

You should try shopping out of town, where they COMPETE and offer services and lower prices. You can barely get your groceries bagged IF they don't try to corral you into checking yourself out AND bagging your own AND taking them to your car for you. The previuos poster had it right Food Shitty.

For one, EPA standards since the early 90's states that you can pour small amount of latex paint in the drain, its bio-degradable. I know, I have work with them, not for them, and two, Knox county and surrounding areas get there water from river/springs and since I have moved here from cocke county the water is 100% better. They water is shit in Newport, because Nub and the water company are not doing there jobs, there dumb ass's who are ripping people off, my electric is cheaper here than there and you can blah blah blah all day, I do not give a dam.
