Shaw Industries in South Pittsburg, Tenn., seeks comments on expansion into wetlands

Posted: Updated:

The $40 million expansion of Shaw Industries hardwood flooring plant in South Pittsburg, Tenn., will disturb a small area of wetlands on the 13-acre tract where the work will take place.

Shaw officials say the expansion and associated work on a nearby tributary and wetlands area actually will improve conditions.

But the work means an open comment period must be held to allow public comment or requests for a public hearing on construction that will permanently fill less than a quarter-acre of wetlands and affect just under 950 feet of a small tributary of Poplar Springs Branch. The comment period ends Jan. 11.
