Quarry Blasting Is Damaging Homes

Angry O’Fallon, Missouri residents confronted their elected officials Thursday night, demanding a probe into quarry blasting that they say is destroying their homes. Gary and Barbara Rowlett are among the homeowners complaining about damage. The Rowletts say they have cracks in their walls, and nails popping through their dry wall, all because of ground shaking caused by explosions at a quarry owned by the Fred Weber Company. But, there is no solid proof that the blasting is causing the problems. And, a spokesperson for the city of O’Fallon says the company has all the proper permits and is well within the limits of all quarry regulations. Still, nearby residents aren’t convinced. Says one woman, “When I”m standing in my home and my home is shaking, and i hear and feel the blasting, there is a problem.” The O’Fallon City Council did promise to take one step to invesigate the problem. Right now, the Fred Weber company pays a company to monitor the blasting. The city will hire its own experts, to see if they get the same results.
