Puslinch Council Alarmed Over Historically Low Water Levels Near Gravel Pit
‘We have enough evidence to suggest there’s a problem there and I don’t think it’s unreasonable to ask that work stops while the problem is addressed:’ Councillor Matthew Bulmer
Puslinch council is requesting a local gravel pit to temporarily cease below water table extraction at one of their ponds while water level thresholds are reviewed.
A monitoring report presented by Harden Environmental Services to Puslinch council on Tuesday reported historically low water levels recorded south of the CBM owned Roszell Road pit.
This low water level can not be only attributed to seasonal climate change as the report notes this isn’t the case at other aggregate sites in the township. A later report on the Mast-Snyder pit reported no concerns of this nature.
