Elmhurst Quarry Flood Tunnel In operation 9/13/08. This is part of the Salt Creek flood protection for Elmhurst and downstream. A tunnel connect Salt creek to the old quarries. When the water is high some of the creek is diverted down the tunnel into the old pit. When the creek gets back to normal level a series of pumps return the water to the creek. While I was watching a number of people stopped to take a look. One guy asked about the old tunnels wondering if they had been sealed off. When they were mining limestone here the limestone played out somewhere over 300 feet deep. The operators decided to cut some shafts through a thick layer of shale (100 ft ?) and found more limestone under the shale. So this quarry is a combination open-pit and tunnel mine. Rumors said that some tunnels went as far as downtown Elmhurst. More Elmhurst storm videos are available on this channel. Including video of the June & July 2010 storms.

Ancient Holy Land Quarry Discovered From a distance, this cave may not look particularly special. But on closer inspection, what looks like a pile of rubble reveals facts about a time we know very little about. Buried 10 meters beneath the desert, near the ancient West Bank city of Jericho, the cave was discovered by a team of Israeli archaeologists. They say the quarry could date back to the time of Jesus. [Professor Adam Zertal, Archaeologist]: "This is the largest underground cave in Israel, it was originally a quarry, and we believe that probably it was a sacred place, so that the stones, the quarried stones are much more valuable than ordinary quarries." It is these Christian symbols that are of most interest to the archaeologists. They hold the key to how old the cave is and how long it was in use for. [Professor Adam Zertal, Archaeologist]: "The architecture is extremely interesting, those rooms with the columns, supporting columns. Then you have the incisions. Incisions are one of - it's probably a zodiac, the other is a legion, a Roman legion flag probably, and we have other incisions." The team believes the stones were used to build temples and monasteries in the region. It's quite a discovery in such a historically significant region.

Split Rock Quarry - The Abandoned Rock Crusher On July 12, 1918 a munitions plant exploded at what is known today as Split Rock Quarry. That day 50 men were killed, over 100 injured, houses shook as many buildings were damaged within a half of mile radius. Fif*** of the men were never identified from the incident and today this quarry is one of the most haunted in the country. Some say that you can see glowing green and yellow figures standing on the stone crusher which is inside the cliff or on the quarries ledges. When the plant exploded the men were covered by picric acid which probably is why the ghost have a glowing greenish yellow skin. Since the quarry was a mining facility men who died here were buried alive and burnt to death by the acidic explosion.
