Rogers Group Responds to Quarry Complaint

July 12, 2022 – According to The Claiborne Progress, some community members maintain that The Rogers Group’s quarry operation in Speedwell, Tenn., “is ruining the land and polluting the air and water while The Rogers Group shows no regard.” This exaggeration was disputed hands-down by The Rogers Group, which stated, “Crushed stone from the plant in Speedwell is being used in the Highway 63 improvement project in Claiborne and Campbell Counties. Public notices were issued and all necessary permits to operate the plant were obtained and are on file with Claiborne County.” The disgruntled community members want the county to draft an ordinance that would prohibit blasting, surface mining or rock crushing operations inside residential areas, and say they are pursuing other options. Meanwhile, the Highway 63 improvement project continues to receive some excellent stone.
