US Nitrogen Cited For Tardy Permit Reports
By Walter F. Roche Jr.
US Nitrogen has been cited by state environmental officials for late filing on reports required under four of their construction permits.
In a two-page letter dated Wednesday, an official of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation said the reports were filed 31 days past the March 31 due date.
The notice marks the second time this week that the Greene County chemical firm has been cited for the late filing of reports required under state issued permits.
In the letter Amanda Davis, a TDEC manager, wrote that US Nitrogen officials could present evidence that no violation had been committed.
TDEC records show the reports covering activities during 2016 under the permits were filed this week.
The reports include details of compliance with the permits for the nitric acid plant and the operation of a steam generating boiler among others.
