Peterview Gravel Quarry     

Proponent:  D. Byrne & Sons Ltd.

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent has proposed the construction and operation of a 15.7 hectare quarry site (under two quarry permit applications), approximately two kilometres from the Town of Peterview along Route 350. The proposed quarry is adjacent to an existing quarry site which totals 10 hectares (two 5-hectare quarry areas), and this area is currently operated by the proponent. The proposed quarry operation will include crushing and screening of quarry materials for markets in Botwood and the surrounding area. There is an existing access road off of Route 350. There would be no fuel stored in bulk on site, nor would there be any drilling, blasting, or washing of any aggregate. The quarry is expected to operate from May to November annually and for a period of approximately 15 years. The operation is expected to commence in May 2017.
