Quarry Permit Rescinded

The Pennsylvania Environmental Hearing Board (EHB) has rescinded New Hope Crushed Stone and Lime Company's permit to dig the quarry deeper, citing significant damage to the surrounding environment. The July 31 decision can be read in its entirety here.

The EHB, which hears appeals from actions taken by the state Department of Environmental Protection, ruled in favor of The Solebury School, which argued that mining activities caused the formation of sinkholes on the school campus, creating serious threats to the students and adults who live, work and study there.

At issue is whether the DEP erred when it granted the quarry a permit to deepen its mine to 170 feet below sea level, operations that require the constant pumping, or "dewatering," of the pit. The EHB found that the dewatering is the cause of the sinkholes at the school. The panel cited several instances where the DEP's decision to allow deepening of the quarry was flawed and concluded that the quarry “is causing and perpetuating a hazardous condition on its neighbor’s property.”

Both the DEP and the quarry have a right to appeal the order in Commonwealth Court.
