Public Hearing on Wake Stone Quarry Application for Modification

05/14/2020 1:28 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

RALEIGH – Based on significant public interest, the Division of Energy, Mineral, and Land Resources (DEMLR) plans to hold a public hearing on the Wake Stone Corporation, Triangle Quarry application, to modify permit number 92-10.   Wake Stone Corporation has applied to expand its quarrying operations by developing 106 acres of the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority's Odd Fellows tract.    

Given the guidance on preventing the spread of COVID-19, DEMLR is evaluating the most appropriate options to safely allow public participation and will announce details of the hearing as soon as they are available.

In accordance with The Mining Act of 1971 § 74-51(c), the public hearing must be held by July 7.

Written comments may be submitted to N.C. Department of Environmental Quality, Attn: Judy Wehner 1612 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, N.C., 27699-1612 or by email to ncminingprogram@ncdenr.gov.

All comments received will be considered in the final permit decision on this application. 

Wake Stone Corporation's application and related documents can be found here.
