This December, the WVDEP is accepting comments on water quality permits for two industrial facilities in Jefferson County – TeMa and Rockwool. Comments on the TeMa facility’s NPDES permit are due December 7, and comments on the Rockwool NPDES permit are due December 23. This week, we’re sharing how you can comment on the TeMa permit. Stay tuned, we’ll share our fact sheet on the Rockwool permit soon!

The TeMa plant is located in the Burr Industrial Park and would produce insulation and drainage systems.

WV Rivers is concerned by the potential impacts the TeMa facility could have on drinking water. The facility would be constructed on karst topography and located near a number of drinking water sources. Because of these sensitive water resources, additional scrutiny of this facility and its potential impacts on water quality is warranted.
