Public meeting held on opening burning at Holston Army Ammunition Plant

Local

Members of the Kingsport community were given the opportunity to have their voice heard at a public meeting on open burning at Holston Army Ammunition Plant Thursday. 

News Channel 11 obtained video showing open burning on site last month. 

Those in attendance asked why it’s taken so long for the plant to adopt new technology that allows for cleaner disposal of waste. 

Plant officials say they are currently working through a four phase plan to cut down on open burning. 

Another community meeting is scheduled for July 10 at 6 pm at ETSU’s Allendale campus in Kingsport.
