Creekwood Resources - Granite Quarry

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.

Stakeholders in close proximity (homeowners, business owners) are invited to a meeting hosted by Mayor Fuller on Friday morning, January 31st, 9:30 am in City Council Chambers.  He will be joined by City officials, State and County officials, folks from Opelika City Schools and Opelika Utility Board (water). We will discuss a strategy for preventing the quarry from moving forward.
