New Wake Stone Mining Site Plans Reveal Greater Impact to Umstead State Park

Let DEQ know you oppose the new quarry.


Help us reinstate the sunset clause

Ask Governor Cooper to protect our State Park and public lands from a proposed new 400-foot deep rock mine on the Odd Fellows Tract and:

  • Restore the promised Sunset Clause at the existing rock quarry on the south side of Crabtree Creek and end the noise, dust, water pollution and truck conflicts at our popular Umstead State Park entrance off Harrison Avenue in Cary by 2031. Restore the Sunset Clause, prevent a new quarry.

  • Perform a full Environmental Assessment per the NC State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) for the proposed new quarry pit on the north (other side of Crabtree Creek)
