RDU Quarry Mining Permit Denied, but Appeal Filed

On February 17, 2022, NC DEQ denied the mining permit for RDU Quarry, but Wake Stone Corporation filed an appeal on March 14, 2022. We are confident that the proposed quarry operations on public lands immediately adjacent to State protected recreational lands will not happen, but Wake Stone has chosen pursue this folly. So, we fight on.
