WESTERLY, R.I. (AP) - A lawyer representing neighbors of a former quarry property in Westerly is calling for a new investigation.

The Westerly Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1xlAm8Q ) that the lawyer, Michael Kelly, says neighbors’ complaints that stone dust from the Copar quarry site on their homes and the state’s findings of dust violations are substantiated by a report by a lawyer appointed by a Superior Court judge to monitor the company.

The report says the volume of stone dust at the quarry has steadily increased.

Jeffrey Gladstone, the lawyer for quarry owner Armetta LLC, denied the operation violates state, local or federal regulations. He said Kelly’s letter is a stunt intended to continue a legal battle.

The court-sponsored study says the top of the highest granite sand panel and ‘stone dust’ remain at about the same height as in September 2012.
