RALEIGH – The N.C. Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Air Quality (DAQ) will host a digital public hearing on Tuesday, September 21 on a draft permit for the Carolina Sunrock LLC – Prospect Hill Quarry and Distribution Center facility in Caswell County. The public is invited to participate online or by phone.
In 2020, DAQ denied the synthetic minor permit application after modeling found that the facility would violate both the nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) beyond the property boundary. Carolina Sunrock LLC submitted a new application to demonstrate compliance with NAAQS.
If you wish to speak at the public hearing, you must register by 4:00 p.m. on September 21. To register, please visit: https://bit.ly/3jthnIa or call (919) 618-0968.
For those who are unable to attend or who experience technical difficulties, comments can also be submitted by email to DAQ.publiccomments@ncdenr.
