Hickman County Times: “Save Lick Creek meets with TDEC”


Save Lick Creek’s leaders announced last Wednesday that the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation will hold a public meeting in Hickman County, likely in late April.

Amanda Mathis, one of the organizers of the group, reported in a social media post that leaders of the citizens’ group met for an hour last week with TDEC Commissioner David Salyers and Deputy Commissioner Greg Young, who attended the meeting in Lyles on February 25.

Save Lick Creek has objected to the Water Authority of Dickson County’s proposal to construct a wastewater treatment plant that would release effluent into Lick Creek, and wants more information about it.

TDEC has authority over if and how the application will be approved.
