Notes

Quarrying of carbonate rocks for various purposes dates back to early times. The impact of quarries on the environment and particularly on the groundwater system in terms of quality and quantity has often been ignored until the last few decades. Regardless of the small amount of quarried rock compared to the volume of an outcrop, the result of removing the protective cover of an aquifer may cause severe pollution of the groundwater. Another impact is that groundwater flow patterns may change due to manmade effects, such as blasting. Sites of quarries, therefore, should be selected by considering the hydrogeological, environmental and economic factors.
