New Hope Crushed Stone
On July 10, 2017, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) issued a Compliance Order to New Hope Crushed Stone (NHCS) in Solebury Township, Bucks County. Following a review of the reclamation progress information submitted by NHCS, DEP has determined that NHCS has failed to conduct its reclamation activities to the minimum requirements previously outlined by the Department. NHCS must immediately cease active mining operations and conduct reclamation to correct the current reclamation volume shortfall of 18,722 cu yards on a continuous daily basis until the shortfall is eliminated to DEP's satisfaction. On August 10, 2017, DEP determined the reclamation shortfall was resolved. By clicking on the link, you can find a copy of the Inspection Report lifting the Compliance order.
