MOUNT VERNON — A request was approved by the Knox County Board of Commissioners on Thursday morning for B&J Drilling to apply salt brine at two of their addresses of business. Locations to receive the application of brine for ice and dust control are at 13911 Millersburg Road and 27550 Buckeye Road, Danville.
No opposition was present to discuss the brine application. “It appears that all criteria have been met,” said commissioner Allen Stockberger in reviewing the request. Stockberger added that this public hearing is not the final approval. The request is now sent on to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources for its approval.
