BIG SOUTH FORK OFFICIALS TO HOLD PUBLIC MEETINGS
posted 06/30/2014 by firstname.lastname@example.org
Officials with the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area will hold a series of public meetings in July to discuss with the public the issue of contaminated mine lands drainage in the region. The National Park Service is preparing an impact statement of the issue and treatment systems in the Big South Fork and will include the notes and input from the meetings in that statement. The statement will further identity actions to address the need to improve water quality in the tributaries of the Big South Fork River. The first public meeting will be Monday July 14th at the Interpretation and Education Building at the Bandy Creek Visitor Center on the Tennessee side of the park. A meeting will be held Tuesday July 15th at the McCreary County Senior Citizens Center at the county park, and a third meeting is scheduled for Thursday July 17th at the Oak Ridge High School Food Court in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. All meetings will last from 5:00 to 8:00pm eastern time and are open to the public. Comments on the project can also be submitted by Friday August 15th by mail or online at parkplanning.nps.gov/biso. For information call the Big South Fork park headquarters at 423-569-9778.
