Fun fact: Each day, Eastman pumps an average of 420 million gallons of water from the Holston River to support production at its Kingsport site.

Data point: The health of the river, as it passes through Kingsport, Tenn., has improved dramatically. At Riverfront Park, in 1965 there were only 3 species of fish living in the river. In 2010, conditions had improved such that there were 29 species, including darters, shiners and a variety of game fish.

Watch as Eastman employee, Dr. Richard Strang, tells his story.
