The Quarry Nalježići is located on the south-western slopes of Lovćen, only 250-500 m from the village Nalježići and has been in operation for the last 40 years. It main activity was exploitation of technical – construction stone and sand production by rock crushing and it was managed by the Public Utility Company (PUC) Kotor. In December 2011, after two years of complaint by the people from Gornji Grabalj, the Environmental Protection Agency banned the work of the Quarry. The PUC Kotor initiated the process of regaining the concession to exploit the stone deposits. The citizens suggested relocation of the quarry to prevent negative impacts on environmental and health conditions in the current location (manly dust and noise) as well as on the nearby cultural - historical monuments and arable land (covered in dust in dry periods). Also, the citizens claim PUC Kotor uses meteorological parameters (such as level of precipitation) from the 1960s to 1990s, and does not take into account the changes in micro-climate that have occurred in the last 20 years. However, even though the banning decision includes an order for remediation of the site, such activities have never started, nor the damaged roads and bridges have been repaired. The local people believe that the re-engagement of PUC Kotor is unacceptable, while PUC Kotor claim the remediation is in progress and that this quarry is one of the best organized in Montenegro. On July 12 2013, The Environmental Protection Agency of Montenegro informed the public on the approval of the Environmental Impact Assessment for the Quarry to reopen. Nearby there are also two other quarries - “Rudine“ and “Rudine II“ whose environmental impact should not be separated from that of Quarry Nalježići. The Environmental movement Ozon appealed on this decision, while people from Gornji Grabalj filled a charge against the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism for adopting EIA despite of many complains. The quarry continues to operate.
