Letter to the Editor, The Wellington Times, September 4, 2019.
To change prime agriculture land to a sand pit to extract about 20,000 tons or about 600 truck loads of sand a year will leave a big hole. If the County needs that much, it has to come from somewhere. My concern is rehabilitation. There are several worked out sand pits on Ridge Road, including the one the County paid $3,000,000 for to two former County politicians. Would a member of council or anyone else show me a sand pit in the County that has been rehabilitated? Or is this another environmental problem we will be passing on to future generations.
