Some sewage treatment restored at Gatlinburg

Some operations have been restored at a Gatlinburg wastewater plant following a wall collapse that killed two workers and officials say sewage is no longer flowing untreated into the Little Pigeon River.

A spokesman for plant operator Veolia Water North America said at a news conference that operations are being tested and monitored. Veolia East Region President Keavin Nelson said treatment is “almost back to where we normally are” but he could not be more specific.

A wall collapse at the plant Tuesday killed two workers.

Nelson said the plant resumed operations Wednesday night.

He said an investigation of the wall collapse is continuing. Tennessee’s environmental and workplace accident agencies are also investigating.
