This project, sponsored by Worcester Polytechnic Institute, has been prepared for Puerto Rico's Department of Transportation and outlines the perspectives of four groups involved with the aggregate industry on the issue of environmental impacts posed by the lengthening of quarry permits. Working from archived data and key informant interviews, we gathered information pertaining to how a longer quarry permit will affect each organization and the perceived environmental impacts associated with a long quarry permit. We analyzed whether a longer quarry permit would or would not be beneficial to the aggregate industry and the environment.
