TAKE ACTION: STOP PROPOSED GRANITE QUARRY -- HERE'S HOW
Citizens are invited to help Opelika Mayor Gary Fuller and the city stop proposed granite quarry. You are encouraged to write ADEM. For more information see the city website News Feed. Creekwood Resources in Florence, AL has applied to ADEM for an air permit and a NPDES permit for a proposed granite quarry. The site is on County Road 168 just off US 431 north of Opelika. It’s not in Opelika City Limits but our citizens and residents would be greatly impacted, in a negative way, if this is allowed. It is less than two miles from Saugahatchee Lake which is the primary source for drinking water in our community. There are many residential neighborhoods that will be affected including National Village, Marriott Resort & Spa and the Grand National Golf Course.
