Impacts

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTs

RDUAA and Wake Stone have not, and do not plan, to conduct an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). 

The current forested watershed (Odd Fellows Tract) provides water quality and flood control protections for Crabtree Creek. Wake Stone is promoting a limited forested buffer and a berm around the perimeter of the new quarry pit. A buffer less than 250’ is not nearly enough to protect the beauty and experience of the Old Reedy Creek recreation corridor nor the border with Umstead State Park. The current Wake Stone quarry pit has much larger buffers between it and neighboring recreational areas.

Wake Stone also has a history of polluting Crabtree Creek with their current quarry. Watch the video to learn more.



HEALTH IMPACTS



Liz Adams is a Research Associate at the UNC Institute for the Environment where she specializes in air quality monitoring. Watch this video to hear what Liz says about the impact quarries have on air quality.

"The reason why we typically don't see uses such as mines next to state parks is it's incompatible with the use of a state park. You're coming out here to exercise. People come out everyday and so they really could be exposed to harmful particulate matter unknowingly because it's invisible, you can't see it.

Think about what you would wish for your children and for all the families around you — you would want everyone around you to stay healthy and that's what our goal is."
