Spring Hill leaders to discuss crematory environmental report

Posted: Updated:
SPRING HILL, TN (WSMV) -

The results of an environmental report on a proposed crematory are in and city leaders are set to discuss it Monday night.

The Spring Hill Funeral Home on Main Street has been pushing to add the crematory to their facility.

Many people in nearby neighborhoods are fighting the expansion because of concerns about mercury vapors from the cremation process.

But the study ordered by the city found the mercury levels would be low, and within the range of estimated emissions from other sources.

A final vote on the issue is expected in the coming weeks, possibly next Monday.
