Luck Stone Spotsylvania Plant Manager Hugh Stevens points out that this is the third Gold Award that his operation has won from NSSGA. “It makes us feel like we’ve set ourselves apart,” he says, adding that “the greatest impact to community relations is what we do here on a daily basis.” Hugh also notes the importance of consistently performing all environmental controls, responding to neighbors, maintaining the appearance of the site, and engaging the community.
Previously, Spotsylvania won an About Face in 2006 and an Environmental Excellence award in 2008.
Luck Stone’s Powhatan has also now won its third NSSGA award. The other two awards were an Environmental Eagle Award in 1996 and Quarry of the Year in 1998. In 2010, the Powhatan Plant won statewide recognition from the VTCA and DMME for reclamation.
“The guys have taken real pride in the recognition and the fruits of their labor,” said Powhatan Plant Manager Jamey Epps. “They’re all excited to see their plant’s name and their work recognized at a national level.”
