Help stop the Langham Creek Quarry!!!!

The newly proposed rock quarry will be located at the corner of Benfield Rd and McFarland Rd in York, SC. Please share with family/friends, this will effect more than just the local residents- many neighbors are not aware of the plans.

This quarry will not only lower our property values it is a danger to our health, vegetation and wildlife. Local houses and wells will be in danger of structural damage from mining and blasting. It could also disrupt and pollute the water table leaving homeowners and wildlife with limited or no water availability.

Below are some personal and environmental examples of effects from a quarry.

Dust exposure, plant leaves covered with dust, inability to grow crops, eye and nasal allergies, chronic cough, higher level of airway restrictions compared to general population, decreased lung function, loss of fertile topsoil, depletion of ground water, flooding, sinkholes, and damage to local roads.

Please consider signing our petition to stop the quarry and potential devastating effects to residents and the environment. Feel free to leave a comment on the effects this will have on your personally. We need your help to stop this!
