Re: “MLGW Will Begin Automatically Rounding up Bills in January

Jackie,
You are misinformed re:Crosstown.
$900k from the stormwater fund is going to increase stormwater storage via the project. A creek runs under the building as was in need of more stormwater storage before Crosstown was even a project. CT offered the chance to do something about it. Appropriate.
$500 k from street lights has been used to replace broken street lights and install new street lights because of the future increase in traffic b/c of CT. Duh.
$1.5 mill for streets because the streets were in horrible shape and needed to be rebuilt. It also helped reconnect blocks and neighborhoods that were cut-off back when the building was being expanded back in the day.
Get the facts before posting.

Re: “MLGW Tests Drinking Water Close to Contaminated Well

The concern isn't that the arsenic and lead leaking from TVA's coal ash ponds has already reached MLGW's wells--it could take decades for it to reach the Davis well field. What is of great concern is that the sucking force of TVA's new cooling water wells could draw the contaminants down through unidentified holes in the aquifer's protective clay layer that might exist in the immediate vicinity of the new power plant. Groundwater scientists from the University of Memphis strongly suspect that there may be holes in the clay in the area but haven't had the funding to study it in detail. TDEC might want to have TVA hire them to check it out.

Re: “TVA Finds High Arsenic, Lead Levels Near New Wells

MLG&W never determined the source of contamination of the water wells at Pine Hill Golf Course. There were two possible chemical companies that used that chemical. The past situation doesn't make me confident that there are no windows in the clay layer around the ash ponds.

Re: “TVA Finds High Arsenic, Lead Levels Near New Wells

Tom Volinchak, go read the comments by the preeminent scientist on Memphis groundwater on the Commercial Appeal. I think his credentials way outweigh yours. Wait, what are your scientific credentials again?

Re: “Buyer’s Market

There is lots of empty acreage over on the south side of the interstate loop. Both around the Old American Way Mall area and across from that where Samuel's Furniture Warehouse sits. Why not rebuild over there?

Re: “TVA Finds High Arsenic, Lead Levels Near New Wells

Thank goodness there are enough sensible people who do not deny things like hard cold science and how fracking contaminates deep well aquifers by breaching their barriers. I suppose they even advocate for the gas company shills and fact deniers too.... Funny how they whine and scream "fake science" but when their own drinking water starts catching fire right out of their taps and their kids, loved ones and animals are all sick and dying from strange illnesses they seem to make a miraculous turnabout.

Re: “MLGW Will Begin Automatically Rounding up Bills in January

This will end up like many other things we pay for on MLGW bills only to find out that the money was used for something else that MLGW sees as more important. Opt out!!!
Such as Crosstown funding
$900,000 is being taken from the storm water fund, $500,000 from the MLGW street light fund, and $1.5 million from the street work fund. Just my thoughts.

Re: “MLGW Will Begin Automatically Rounding up Bills in January

Vivian has a point. I would think such donations could be used as a deductible charitable contribution. Will MLGW also be providing documentation to all customers that clearly define the amount being "donated"?

Re: “MLGW Will Begin Automatically Rounding up Bills in January

That is terrible. It is like forced charitable contributions and should not be allowed. We should always be able to direct our donations where we want to. Just my opinion.
