Smokies improvements
In April, U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke visited the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to discuss a plan to address the Park's $215 million in backlogged maintenance needs. US Senator Lamar Alexander and Zinke, along with the Smokies Deputy Superintendent Clay Jordan, visited the Look Rock Campground, which has been closed for 5 years because of lack of funds to repair its water treatment facility, roads, picnic tables and campground pads. On Wednesday, Zinke announced $2.6 million in funding to rehabilitate the Elkmont Waste Water System. The plant is located in Sevier County and treats effluent which are discharged into the Little River, downstream of Elkmont Campground. Funds for the Look Rock Campground and other park needs have not been addressed.
