Ebsco Industries attempts to block Vincent quarry, gets accusations

VINCENT, AL (WBRC) - Ebsco Industries is trying to block a new limestone quarry in the Shelby County city of Vincent, but White Rock Quarries is making their own accusations.
     
White Rock held a news conference Thursday accusing Ebsco of trying to block the project to hide years of illegally dumping hazardous waste. Representatives say Ebsco's assertion that the quarry would cause sinkholes is quote "a smokescreen."

Ebsco says it is disappointed in the tactic White Rock has chosen and adds that Ebsco Industries strives to be a good corporate citizen, provide a safe working environment and operate within the law.
