Entergy Arkansas “Select Site”

Newport’s industrial site received special recognition from Entergy Arkansas on Wednesday.

During a news conference, officials announced that the industrial site was certified as a “Select Site” by Entergy Arkansas.

To receive that certification, the site needed to meet a 50-point criteria list. This includes items such as geotechnical studies, historical studies, and studies to determine if toxic waste had been dumped on the site.

Two other sites have been selected as Select Sites by Entergy Arkansas, one in Little Rock and one in Russellville.
