QUARRY HEALTH HAZARDS
« on: October 18, 2010, 02:28:34 AM »
My husband and I are going to be looking at a house on 24+ acres.  It is a total wreck, which means we could actually sort of afford it!  So my husband was planning to fix it up over time, and we were thinking it could be perfect.  We have always dreamed of having some land.  However, the rear of the property borders a HUGE stone quarry.  We have little ones, so I want to be sure that there aren't any risks to living so close.  There is also a creek that flows through both properties, so would the water be contaminated?  I know I have seen many signs encouraging people to vote against quarries in the past, but I don't know any of the technicalities - it it a pollution issue?  I remember that at least one person here owns a quarry, and I'm sure others will be able to offer some help as well.  Thanks!
