Elmer Pit/5th Line and 10th Sideroad

The Elmer pit was issued a stop work order in March for non-compliance to the site alteration agreement. The two areas that the operator was not in compliance were dumping soil within 30 metres of the boundary and exceeding the height of the roadway.  The pictures that were sent to the MNR from a neighbour showed the pile of fill that was put in over a weeks time frame and this alerted the MNR site manager to the gravity of the situation.  Thank you for helping to make the stop order happen.
