The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, Department of Health, along with TVA are finalizing the sampling plan. For the SPSC. Based on a timeline submitted by the TDEC it appears that the SPSC will be closed throughout the summer and hopefully the interpretation of the sampling will be completed by the Fall. We have our fingers crossed for a Fall season. Sampling has not begun yet.

AYSO has found other suitable locations for the spring season and this could be the case for the rest of the year. TDEC and the TN Department of Health have submitted a preliminary timeline for the necessary work. This timeline will conclude in early Fall 2019.

Roane County is excited to complete its Access to Health through Healthy Active Built Environments Grant Project. The project was a grant funded by the Department of Health to install four exercise equipment pieces to give better access to physical activity at the Roane County Park.
