Sample Letter from Citizens to ADEM

Note: It would be helpful if citizens tailor letter to address your own concerns and circumstances. Please know that ADEM is only concerned about air and water.  There are many other issues…noise, vibration, heavy trucks and passing three of our public schools (Morris Avenue, Opelika High and Jeter Primary) as well as Southern Union Community College.

QUARRY SITE_radius

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.
