Water Quality

This page deals with two aspects of the impact of quarries, concrete plants and asphalt plants upon surrounding water: water availability and water quality.

Water Availability 

This refers to the impact that removing an estimated 500,000 tons of rock each year will have on the water in the underground aquifer that supplies the wells of area residents.  What will the impact of removing this much rock have on the underlying aquifer? Will a quarry of this size drain the aquifer and hence the wells of local residents?

Water Quality

Water quality refers to the impact that runoff of the byproducts of operating a concrete plant, asphalt plant, and a stone crushing plant will have on the surrounding watershed and underlying aquifer.
