EPA Calls Metro Water Services to the Carpet for Dumping Wastewater into the Cumberland River

NewsChannel5 is reporting tonight that the EPA and U.S. Justice Department are demanding that Nashville clean up wastewater overflow that spilled into the Cumberland River. The spill allegedly violated the Clean Water Act. Nashville stands to pay a fine, which would likely start in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and could go up into the millions, along with litigation fees if the matter is not settled out of court. If these allegations are true this is a black mark against our city and one more grudge to hold against Metro Water Services.
