Issues continue to arise with the old landfill in Midtown, according to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation.
“The old Roane County Landfill is in post-closure and for several years has had small localized seeps along with occasional landfill gas issues,” TDEC spokeswoman Kelly Brockman said. “This has caused final-cover grass to die in spots.”
Brockman said the state has asked Roane County to install vent pipes and cover the seeps with plastic when it rains.
