County quarry claims now total over $500,000

Six more homeowners have filed claims against Pierce County, alleging blasting in a county rock quarry has caused over $50,000 in damage for each of them.

The new claims join four others filed in July.

The families--who live on 180th Avenue, 185th Avenue or CTH VV in the Town of Trenton--say blasting done by the highway department has caused cracks in the walls, cement floors, foundations and driveways of their homes. The quarry is located on CTH VV.

All 10 of the homeowners are represented by Prescott attorney Warren Lee Brandt.

Claims have been filed by Paul Greenhaw, Maryann C. Anderson, Duane Dorau, Mike J. Miller, Cheryl Winberg, Jeffrey and Colleen Gilles, Allen and Vickie Wilkens, Donald Charleston, Chad and Amy Nelson, and Wayne and Mary Beard.
