More photos- peak of flood at proposed precinct location and the damage to at least 100 homes just downstream in Nations neighborhood


The proposed Metro West Nashville Police precinct and crime lab (above) requested a stream buffer variance in March, which was approved. The recommended FEMA 75 foot stream buffer reclamation is certainly now understood by the view of the massive flood water May 2nd. Photos sent to RCWA shows the extent of flooding.
RCWA comments to the Stormwater Management Committee spoke to the lack of a riparian area could cause dangerous flooding, which it did. Nations neighborhood experienced tragic loss and fatalities (below).
Metro police closes neighborhoods off to visitors today because of looting.
