Frederick County quarry fined $2,500 after report of 'chalky' water

The Maryland Department of the Environment has fined a Frederick County rock quarry $2,500 after a resident reported "chalky colored" water.

County sustainability manager Shannon Moore tells the Frederick News-Post the discolored water in Israel Creek was reported Feb. 6 to the county Office of Sustainability and Environmental Resources. The water was deemed to not be a health risk.

Moore says the source of the discolored water was traced to a quarry operated by Laurel Sand and Gravel Inc., a limestone processing plant. Plant manager Mike Myers says a cable holding a water pump at the quarry snapped and allowed the pump to float over to a section of water mixed with rock dust.

MDE served the company with a $2,500 penalty and ordered it to build an embankment between the wastewater and clean water.
