Water and caves Quarrying and the environment ...

Thirdly, quarrying can cause fissures to become blocked e.g. by blasting vibration dislodging the rocks beyond the quarry void itself or by generating fine material which can be washed into fissures. In addition, the limestone has a significant water storage capacity, both above and below the water table. By removing the rock, quarrying can reduce the storage available in the aquifer.
