CPD Discusses Quarry Safety With Shelly Materials

CPD Discusses Quarry Safety With Shelly Materials (Image 1)

Five years ago, a Hilliard  High School student drowned in the quarry close to where 17-year-old Colin Jourdan slipped and fell Monday evening. 

There have been two separate drownings since 2010 in the quarry behind Runaway Bay Apartments. The quarry is owned by Shelly Materials.

Police have tried ticketing people who swim illegally in the quarries, but year after year, young people continue to trespass.

“It appeared to be marked pretty well,” said Columbus Police detective Dave Sicilian. “There’s (a) no trespassing (sign) and some fences up. I didn’t survey the whole perimeter. It’s clearly marked and the area is kind of hard to get to.”
Columbus police have discussed the possibility of providing additional safety measures on the property. 
A company official said late this afternoon that he expects those issues will be considered.
