Roane County Deputy Road Superintendent Tony Brown said his department sells brine for 25 cents a gallon to the cities of Kingston and Harriman.
It costs his department about 6 cents a gallon to make.
“The 6 cents is what I’m making it for us,” Brown said.
When selling it to cities, Brown said he has to take into account overhead.
“The 25 cents takes care of my tank, the machine, the maintenance and the labor,” he said.
