Environmental Issues for Clarksville, Tennessee Related to 2010 Flood

We are assisting the City of Clarksville, Tennessee in handling numerous environmental issues raised by the Nashville Flood of 2010’s nearly complete destruction of the city’s wastewater treatment plant at an estimated cost of $100 million. We negotiated a consent order with the Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation (TDEC) to prevent the City from having assessments imposed for violations of law that occurred as a result of this devastation. We also are assisting the City in establishing a path forward for getting the wastewater treatment plant rebuilt on a timeline and in a manner mutually agreeable with it and TDEC. These efforts have resulted in significant savings to the City and will allow it to get its wastewater treatment plant back on line in a streamlined process. In addition, we have appealed FEMA’s denial of approximately $40 million in federal FEMA funds. We are working with senators and other government officials on this pending appeal.

Clarksville, Tennessee is a city in and the county seat of Montgomery County and the fifth-largest city in the state.
