the major impact of quarrying in the karst saturated zone relates to quarry dewatering and the associated decline of the water table. pg 15 if a quarry intersects the watertable ground water commonly will flow out of the rock into the quarry.

fig. 1 - limestone quarries as sources of water pollution. the other impact of a quarry is that quarry blasting may result in the destruction or disruption of groundwater flow paths changes in the pattern of groundwater movement and changes in the quantity of water flowing through the karst system fig. 2 .
karst of thousands. characterised by dramatic hills and caves that have been carved out through erosion over millennia limestone landscapes also known as karst form some of the most breathtaking vistas on our planet. the often isolated nature of these unique features and the extreme soil and water conditions found within them
karst topography and caves develop in limestone rocks due to their solubility in dilute acidic groundwater. the solubility of limestone in water and weak acid solutions leads to karst landscapes. regions overlying limestone bedrock tend to have fewer visible above-ground sources ponds and streams as surface water easily drains downward through joints in the limestone.
welcome to the fiborn quarry it’s hidden down a dirt road just west of trout lake. it used to be a place full of huge limestone crushers steam shovels locomotives and very hard work folks.
carbonate units exposed in this quarry include the avon park formation the ocala limestone and the suwannee limestone. the middle eocene avon park formation miller 1986 occurs in the subsurface throughout west-central florida.
limestone karst formations and ridges are often ancient geological islands or ‘arks’ the final remnants of much wider limestone deposits that have long since eroded away. they therefore contain high-levels of plant and animal micro-endemism restricted to a single small site both on the surface and also beneath the surface in cave systems.

fiborn karst preserve. karst features such as sinks springs and caves were formed by water from swamps and streams south and west of the preserve dissolving limestone along joints and bedding planes in the escarpment as it drained underground toward hendrie river to the north and east. the conservancy manages the preserve as a natural area
these contaminants can also include material like oil and gas from mining equipment. because contaminants in ground water move faster through limestone than other types of rocks quarries in karst areas must be especially careful. quarrying also removes the entire subcutaneous zone an important ground-water storage area.
limestone is a karst-forming rock which produce landforms that are formed by dissolution and represents about 10 percent of the world’s land surface. but limestone cannot be mined without impacting the environment.
limestone dolomite and marble - the carbonate rocks - are the principal karst-forming rocks. karst is a type of topography that is formed on limestone gypsum and other rocks by dissolution that is characterized by sinkholes caves and underground drainage regions.
the unusually pure limestone found in what is now the fiborn karst preserve led to development of fiborn quarry which operated from early 1905 until january 1936. the quarry mined crushed and shipped limestone for use mostly in steelmaking but also calcium carbide manufacturing and road building.
out of quarries with karst groundwater through geochemical methods. the goal of this research is to describe the geochemistry of water exfiltration from limestone quarries in karst regions via joints fractures faulting or karst features and to determine if limestone quarries are “engineered
