Read the RCWA Press Release sent out to local media outlets February 16—TDEC Holds Public Hearing on Whitworth Permit to Dredge Pond.
RCWA has discussed devising a long-term restoration plan with Whitworth to meet state water quality standards for fish and aquatic habitat. The hearing is a great opportunity for people to express support for developing a joint public/private plan that could serve as a model solution for other restoration efforts. The issue here, is that a detention pond, conceived to mitigate stormwater for a Planned Unit Development (PUD), doesn’t serve that purpose. Please read press release!
