Jordan Lake, and I know how bad that
water is, and I sure don’t want to be
drinking that in 10 years.”
Thomas Stone, who lives about three
miles from the quarry, said he opposes
the proposal because of the disruption it
would cause to neighbors.
“People with wells have a lot of sedi
ment problems,” he said. “A lot of peo
ple have had to dig new wells.”
OWASA Board Director Susie
Holloway said the proposed mitigation
measures will be extremely effective in
helping ease neighbors’ concerns.
Some who live near the quarry have
dealt first hand with the proximity of the
mining. “I’m real close to the quarry. I
have experienced some of the dynamite
and had pictures fall off my wall,” said

Spalt, who was joined in voting against
the quarry by Alderman Mark Dorosin
and Mayor Mike Nelson, said in the long
run, the quarry would work well, but he
worried about the in-between time. “The
quarry will end up another hole in the
ground no matter what we do. I don’t
believe we’ll have to go to Jordan Lake.
We don’t have and never will have a
large enough water supply.”
Dorosin said the deal is ironic,
because residents near the quarry have
their own wells from a watershed. “The
benefits don’t outweigh the cost in this
situation,” he said. “We’re asking a com-.-
munity that won’t get water to bear this.
burden from OWASA. I can’t support:
the expansion at this point.”
Nelson said this is a political mistake.'
“It underscores that OWASA has not
been listening to their concerns.”
