Quarry questioned

POSTED: March 13, 2013 8:52 a.m.

In reference to the proposed Calhoun Creek Reservoir, Mayor James Grogan stated in news reports: "It's a manmade reservoir already, an old rock quarry..."

It would be interesting to know what he bases this on. There is no evidence that there has ever been a quarry on Calhoun Creek or Peachtree Creek, the tributary which flows into it and would also be a part of the reservoir.

There has certainly been no quarry there since the World War I era.

Blue Circle did at one time own a part of the land in question, but never had a quarry there.

So, if there was a quarry, what years did it operate and exactly where was it?
