Swan Pond Road Affected

To Roane County Community Advisory Group
February 19, 2010
Kingston Ash Recovery Project

Utility work along Swan Pond Road continues. At 5:15 p.m. after the contractor finishes work for the day, street sweeping operations will begin. Water trucks will be at the work site to minimize any dust that might be created. Only one lane of traffic will be affected while the sweeping is being done.
If you have any questions please give Katie or me a call.

Update: On Friday afternoon as they travelled on Swan Pond Road, some members of the Roane County Community Advisory Group complained that an excessive amount of water remained on the road after the utility contractor had finished with its sweeping. I am told that it was necessary to use more water than usual on Friday to get the road clean since a large amount of dirt and mud had been left from the previous day’s work. Today there will be less water used by the water truck.

Please accept our apology for any inconvenience this may have caused. The appropriate individuals have been contacted and advised to use less water and to keep the water left on the road to a minimum. Please contact us if it occurs in the future.

  1. Why is no one giving the same amount of care to this disaster ash in Perry County Alabama?

    Trucks come and go with no washing or sweepers to clean up after them It remains on the roads until the wind and rain wash it off.

    Your train cars come into Perry County and leave Perry County all sterilized and clean but the ash that is washed off the cars is being discharged directly into the Tayloe Creek with no treatment at all.

    Why are the residents of the affluent white community of Swan Pond any more important than the poor black people where this disaster continues to unfold?
