Pender gravel quarry

Guest 270,

Your comments were right on target: we need good information to render informed decisions. I know the original owner of the mine and he worked hard for almost six years before getting the necessary permits. I know that the original owner also spent thousands of dollars getting the required permits and actually building the quarry. I know a bit about EPA: I worked as a scientist with them for several years. The permits were not issued to the previous owner without extensive hydrological data and estimated damage to the aquifer. As an aside, I would also tell you that the previous owner had developed ideas for a charitable trust with some of the mine profits. He also hoped to provide many well-paying jobs to county residents. Unfortunately, the down-turn in the economy got in the way of the best of intentions.
