Dust from Martin Marietta's Bedrock Mine, 8-25-2011, 7:48 a.m.
Dear Eastern Kerr County Residents:
Attached are two photos of the dust streaming from Martin Marietta's Bedrock Mine gravel crusher, taken at 7:48 a.m. on Thursday, August 25, 2011.
There are several homes and ranches within the immediate area where elderly residents live, with respiratory problems--is it any wonder? They are limited in income and have no power in our political system--in other words, they are expendable. This is a travesty.
Kerr County Conscience is dedicated to stopping the horrifying environmental consequences of the numerous gravel mines still allowed to operate in eastern Kerr County. We are also working to stop, at federal, state, and local levels, ANY PERMITS FOR NEW MINES and any renewal permits for existing mines.
Please help us in this effort. Renew your membership by sending $5.00 to: Kerr County Conscience, P.O. Box 127, Center Point, Texas, 78010--and volunteer to work on the mining project. Only by working together can we make a difference.
Very truly yours,
Kerr County Conscience
