AMERICUS, Ind. (WLFI) — The Rogers Group, which hopes to build a quarry near Americus, clears one more step in the approval process from the state.

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management has issued a permit allowing wastewater associated with the quarrying operation to go into the Wabash River as well as an unnamed tributary nearby. The permit expires in 2019.

As News 18 reported, the Tippecanoe County commissioners passed an ordinance last week that would ban construction of the quarry.

The Rogers Group has filed for a zoning exception with the Board of Zoning Appeals.
