Tennessee Landfill Defeated

On April 10th the Marshall/Maury Municipal Solid Waste Planning Region Board denied approval of a 370-acre municipal and demolition debris landfill proposed three miles from Columbia, Tennessee. The landfill would have been within 300 feet of the Duck River, which supports one of the most diverse populations of mussels and other sensitive species in the U.S. CEDS was retained by those concerned about impacts to the Duck River as well as potential health, property value and quality of life impacts to the nearly 3,000 households within three-miles. The applicant has appealed the denial so this fight is not over yet. For further detail see the CEDS comments posted at: https://app.box.com/s/yer52qg9lm19lm7l5dowt5j3ciectnd2.
