What are the negative impacts on obtaining limestone

The study revealed that open cast mining of limestone rock's and direct contact of wastewater from the cement plants into the water bodies does have a negative impact on the physico-chemical

    How Does Limestone Affect the Environment?

    Apr 09, 2020 Apr 09, 2020 Limestone mining can pollute water and create sinkholes. When limestone dissolves while it's still in the ground, caves and gullies form, a natural phenomenon known as karst. Although this doesn't hurt the environment in its natural form, once the limestone is mined out, sinkholes can form and disrupt underground waterways
