MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Gov. Bill Lee said Tuesday that Tennessee will present a plan in July to build out a wastewater pipeline and offer enhanced incentives to companies looking to locate at the Memphis Regional Megasite.

The 4,100-acre planned industrial site in Haywood County about an hour northeast of Memphis has not yet been built out and does not have a tenant.
