The Umstead Coalition has appealed DEQ's approval for Wake Stone to destroy riparian Neuse River buffers along Crabtree Creek for their new bridge to access their proposed new quarry pit on the Odd Fellows Tract. We have succeeded through various legal hoops to finally have a contested trial with expert witnesses.

Attendance in the audience is helpful to show public support for our cause.  Ideally, we'd have  5 to 10 folks in the audience.  Please come if you can attend for any or all three days.  Arrive at 8:30am to show ID, sign-in and go through a  security check to be ready for a 9am start.  Sit in the section behind the Umstead Coalition attorneys. 

More info: This is an Appeal we previously won (with a different judge) at OAH because alternatives to avoid and minimize impacts to the riparian buffers along Crabtree Creek with the proposed bridge connecting RDU Quarry and the existing Triangle Quarry on the other side were not pursued as the law requires. Wake Stone submitted a new Application with the SAME bridge location and design. DEQ again issued the Buffer Authorization (to destroy riparian buffers) and we appealed (again).  

You can attend the Hearing in person at:
