Noise

​​Yes, and the closer you live to the quarry the more noise you will hear. Residents in the southern neighbourhoods of Rockwood, expecially those on high ground, as well as those on Eramosa 6th and 7th Lines and along the northern reaches of Nassagaweya 5th and 6th Lines will be most affected. Regular blasting, and ongoing rock crushing, heavy equipment, warning beepers, and idling trucks will all contibute. The quarry would operate from 6am to 6pm, 6 days a week throughout the year.  On top of that, you would feel the vibrations from blasting up to a minimum of 2 kilometres from the site.  Of course, this noise is supplemental to the current sound from the busy highway.
