Monterey residents voice concerns on proposed quarry

Residents living in Tennessee’s Monterey area have raised concerns about a proposed quarry, according to Herald-Citizen.

A notice published in the Herald-Citizen earlier this month revealed that Tayes Hollow Property applied to the Tennessee Division of Air Pollution Control for construction of a rock crushing and sizing operation at 10600 Henry Cemetery Road.

The notice reads: “The proposed operation would consist of rock crushers, screens, bins, conveyors, and associated equipment used for the crushing and sizing of rock. Wet suppression would be used for pollution control. There would be physical construction. Regulated air contaminants would be emitted by this source.”

Officials scheduled an information session at the Monterey Community Center in which company representatives were on hand to answer questions.

Local resident Bunny Thatcher is quoted as saying: “Most folks had no idea until last week this proposed rock quarry may happen. We are also concerned about long term impact on Calfkiller waterway and local highways along with long term quality of life.”

More information on the permit application, draft permit and relation materials are available here.
