Abstract

The expansion of construction activities, to meet the development needs of the society, has immensely boosted the demand for construction raw materials in the economy. Quarry industry produces the major raw materials for construction industry. Heavy demand has caused over exploitation of natural resources and lead to environmental and health problems. The major environmental and socio-economic problems related to quarrying revealed during this study include, destroying the natural topography and vegetation, ruining biodiversity, dust pollution, noise pollution, illegal stone extraction, deleting ground water levels. At the same time quarrying being an economic activity has created positive and negative socio-economic effects in the economy. The study attempts to give a descriptive explanation of the environmental and economic issues of quarrying. The study is undertaken with the help of a sample survey conducted in the ecologically sensitive areas (ESA) of Western Ghats
