DPER Periodic Review of Quarry
Quarry Expansion Process
Recently the quarry management provided additional technical reports to DPER for review. DPER is now starting the analysis process which will eventually lead to a decision about the next step in their permit process. We will also review these documents and provide input to DPER. We will keep you up-to-date on any progress. Please visit our web site (www.ragingrivercg.org) for more information about the expansion permit.
What you can do:
Use your phone app and record noise level at various places.Our website outlines noise guidelines.
Take a walk on the Snoqualmie Preston trail up from Preston Fall City Road where you can see the quarry - take a noise sample there.

Please note the ANSWER from DPER regarding property issues:
24._The quarry operator shall be responsible for any damage to nearby properties, including domestic water supply wells, attributable to blasting on the subject property. Claims for any such damage shall be the responsibility of the affected property owner and the quarry operator to handle directly between themselves, but a failure of the quarry operator to respond in good faith to any such claim may be cause for denial of future grading permits, or prohibition or restriction upon future blasting.
