Postponed: Public Hearing on Draft permits for Carolina Sunrock LLC to be held on Aug. 3

Raleigh

The N.C. Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Air Quality (DAQ) is postponing the public hearing scheduled for Monday, June 29, 2020, on the draft permits for two proposed Carolina Sunrock LLC facilities.  Based on a request from county health officials and to address community concerns, the public hearing will be held on August 3, 2020, and the comment period will be extended until August 7, 2020.  Details on the rescheduled hearing will be provided with the appropriate 30-day notice.

The company has submitted two separate permit applications to construct and operate two separate facilities. The Burlington North location is a proposed asphalt and concrete batch plant. The Prospect Hill location is a proposed quarry, asphalt and concrete batch plant. The facilities would emit less than 100 tons/year, each, of any criteria pollutant, and would be classified for permitting purposes as synthetic minor facilities.
