Blasting and crushing quarry rock, re-processing asphalt, concrete and other materials, and increased diesel fumes from up to 60,000 trucks annually will occur at the Campbellville quarry proposed by James Dick Construction Ltd.
ACTIONMilton is concerned that dust generated by the industrial scale aggregate mining, processing and recycling will put toxic pollutants into the air that we residents of Milton and Campbellville breathe. Toxic dust (PM2.5) …hazardous particles less than 2.5 microns in diameter (a cross-section of a human hair is 50 microns) , crystalline silica, etc. will be emitted from the quarry operations along with undefined toxic organic pollutants from the asphalt recycling plant.
ACTION Milton has invited Franco DiGiovanni, an air quality and public safety expert, to make a presentation on the potential risks generated by the proposed quarry. The January 22 Information Meeting will provide an opportunity for community residents to ask questions, share concerns and lend a hand to ACTIONMilton’s quarry opposition.
Doors @ 6:30, Meeting 7pm – 9pm.
