Paperwork Quiets Blasting At N.C. Quarry

Posted Updated

PITT COUNTY, N.C. — The quarry at the center of a huge blasting debate is quieter for now.

Martin Marietta stopped blasting on parts of its quarry near the Wilson-Pitt County line.

Local homeowners had complained that the blasting was damaging their homes by vibrating the ground too much.

Marietta stopped some blasting after learning it failed to notify a nearby town of expansion plans.

Once the paperwork goes through, the company will start blasting again.
