Environmental groups sue, claim lax enforcement

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two environmental groups have filed a lawsuit against the owner of a metals recycling yard in downtown Nashville, claiming stormwater runoff is polluting the Cumberland River.

The Tennessean reported that PCS Metals issued a statement that the lawsuit is without merit because it is based on outdated information.

The lawsuit filed in April by the Tennessee Environmental Council and Rediscover East!, says clean water enforcement by the state and city governments has been inadequate.

A review of records by The Tennessean found PSC had exceeded the concentration limits for metals in at least eight of the last 10 years.
