A 600 acre Waverley Mega Quarry in the making?

There appears to be some significant forest removal happening near Waverley, Ontario Tiny Township.

We are told the trees were cut down in the middle of the night in January & February of this winter (April 2015, Photos by Les Stewart).

Seems almost like a “war zone” to Danny Beaton and me.

See the existing gravel pit entrance on 40 Darby Road? (white arrow).

Could it be:

  • 1.6 million litres of water taken from the aquifer at French’s Hill/Waverley Uplands,
  • 2.6 million tonnnes of gravel taken annually,
  • 190 acres of forest gone (of potentially 600 acres)?
