Addressing Rock Harvesting

Since 2017, the North Chickamauga Creek Conservancy has engaged with the City of Soddy Daisy and Custom Stone Handlers to address a critical threat to the creek: a rapidly expanding stone harvesting operation. In our work, we learned that the operation should have been permitted by the City of Soddy Daisy and cannot be stopped by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. We have pressed all toward a better and more specific reclamation plan, and we will work with partner organizations to improve the legislation that governs these operations.
