Screen Shot 2013-05-20 at 11.38.18 AM [1]The North Carolina Division of Water Quality on Wednesday approved the water quality certification for a proposed rock quarry in Beaufort County, North Carolina, WITN reported [2].

Martin Marietta has proposed the 1,600-acre limestone quarry be located off Welbourn Road near Vanceboro.

Some residents have expressed concerns about possible pollution, noting that wastewater from the quarry would end up in Blounts Creek, where many residents like to fish.

In addition to the water quality certification, Martin Marietta is seeking a national pollutant discharge elimination system permit. The permit would address a proposed discharge to streams leading to Blounts Creek.
