KNOXVILLE, TN, Aug. 18, 2011 (Local News) -The Loudon County Air Quality Task Force is asking the Kimberly-Clark Corp. to take action to prevent repeated particulate discharges that local residents say leaves a fine coating of white dust on vehicles and homes downwind of the plant.

Officials with Loudon County and the cities of Loudon and Lenoir City agreed earlier this week to approve a letter from the task force, asking for something to be done about the discharges.

The letter - addressed to Michael Smith, manager of the Kimberly-Clark mill in Loudon, and signed by task force chairman Michael Crosby - referenced complaints from citizens regarding ash particles purported to come from the boiler operations at the Kimberly-Clark facility.
