We are now officially a chapter of BREDL, the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League. The name of our chapter is “Protect Caswell”.
BREDL functions as a “watchdog” of the environment, monitoring issues and holding government officials accountable for their actions. Under the protection and guidance of BREDL, chapters throughout the Southeast have won many battles against environmentally damaging projects and proposals. BREDL assists communities who are fighting against matters such as highway construction at the expense of public health, and against polluting industries such as asphalt plants and quarries, which have the capacity to destroy a neighborhood’s clean air and water.
Citizens of Caswell County have enlisted the aid of BREDL in their fight against the proposed asphalt/concrete plant on Highway 62 in the Anderson Community (Burlington North site) and the proposed quarry and asphalt/concrete plants in Prospect Hill.
