Public Notices - 8/22/12
Notice of the Availability of an Environmental Assessment
The USDA, Rural Utilities Service has received an application for financial assistance from the Town of Benton. As required by the National Environmental Policy Act and agency regulations, the Rural Utilities Service has prepared an Environmental Assessment that evaluated the potential environmental effects and consequences of the proposal. This notice announces the availability of the Environmental Assessment for public review and comment.
The proposal consists of development and construction of a second well to provide needed backup of the Town of Benton’s water system and provide equipment upgrades at the existing water treatment plant. Possibly locations for the well are with 1,500 feet of the existing water treatment plant located on Betty Stephens Road, east of the Town of Benton. Construction will include installation of a waterline from the new well to the water treatment plant. Mitigation measures include silt fencing, straw bales, erosion control fabric, and similar erosion control techniques to prevent soil migration from excavations. The alternative considered to the proposal included: finding a new water source on either the Ocoee or Hiwassee Rivers and construction a new surface water treatment plant. The environmental effects and costs of this alternative where considerably greater than the proposed activity and was therefore not selected.tic
Copies of the Environmental Assessment are available for review at USDA Rural Development, 309 A North Market Street, Chattanooga, TN 37405, 423-756-2239 or 6496 HWY 411 North, Benton, TN 37307. For further information contact Clay Copeland at 423-756-2239. Any person interested in commenting on this proposal should submit comments to the address above by September 9, 2012.
A general location map of the proposal is shown below.
It is the duty of your Grand Jurors to investigate any public offense which they know or have reason to believe has been committed and which is triable or indictable in this county. Any person having knowledge or proof that such an offense has been committed may apply to testify before the Grand Jury subject to the provisions of TCA, Section 40-12-104.
The Grand Jury will next meet at the Polk County Justice Center on Monday, the 27th day of August, 2012 at 1 p.m. and at the Ducktown Courthouse on the 27th day of August, 2012 at 9:00 A.M.
