Property owners fight for permit to dewater a quarry

The property owners of a Nashville quarry are seeking a permit for dewatering the quarry, which will discharge water in the Harpeth River. This matter is complex due to the usage of a natural depression as a filter to discharge to Tennessee water. Novel legal issues include the resource value of a man-made waterbody; whether the water represents groundwater under state law; and whether adding fill material would cause a condition of pollution of waters of the state. Public interest in the project is intense, as it takes place in a suburban area of Nashville.
