Groundbreaking on Watauga Lake Resort postponed due to permitting issue


Watauga Lake development site plan

CARTER COUNTY, Tenn. (WJHL) — A new resort is still on the way for Watauga Lake, but it’ll just take a little extra time.

A groundbreaking ceremony was set for Oct. 17 on the property, located in Butler.

Carter County Mayor Rusty Barnett tells News Channel 11 the groundbreaking has been postponed for the time-being due to a wastewater permit.

Barnett says they’re working to address the permit and that a ground break is expected either the end of this year, or the first of 2020.
