Army Corps takes Old Hickory dam safety seriously

by Stephen F. Murphy, The Tennessean - The Nashville District is analyzing the possible effects that the proposed quarry’s blasting could have on the lock and dam facilities and operations.

So far, our preliminary information leads us to believe that the resulting vibration levels are within an acceptable range of what the dam is designed to withstand, but we are continuing to look into this issue. The Nashville District also is reviewing whether we have any impacts to aquatic resources associated with the construction of the rock quarry.

We will do our part, along with the other involved agencies, local citizens and representatives, to ensure the safety of the public and to maintain the proven integrity and performance of Old Hickory Lock and Dam. (link)
