Rocky Top, TN-Death of The Lower Clinch Tailwater?
I am curious in what my fellow LRO Forum Members think about Lake City changing to Rocky Top and implementing dictatorship changes. To clarify; my stance is against this name change and disastrous endeavor. I feel that the plan is and has been pushed through the legal/democratic system of a city in dire need of hope. I believe LC/RT is controlled by 2-3 businessman and several of the city council members are expecting to receive financial returns on this venture. That issue in itself is a conflict of interest. Let us disregard this change's history or intention and discuss the economical impact on the Clinch River.
I know for a fact, from my research/samplings, and experiences that Coal Creek from Lake City is a polluting source for the Clinch River. It is astonishing how influential the creek is on the Clinch after heavy rains. Coal Creek is extremely toxic to trout and most fish habitat.
That being stated-as my opinion; how do you think the Clinch will be impacted from the water parks, construction projects, lack of sewage capabilities, etc. from the "Rocky Top" exploit?
