Puslinch councillors are not just concerned with water temperatures at CBM’s Roszell Road Pit, but the fact the company is now extracting material below the water table.
In June, councillors here received information from Stan Denhoed of Harden Environmental regarding temperature changes in groundwater and surface water at CBM’s Roszell Road Pit.
Council subsequently requested Harden’s information be forwarded to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, CBM and Groundwater Science Corp. with the request for a meeting.
In his report Denheod wrote extractive activities at the Roszell Road Pit are causing a thermal impact to groundwater and surface water as evident in monitoring data provided by the operator CBM Aggregates.
