Melancthon Megaquarry and Watershed Protection

June 27th, 2011


Please help stop the projected plan for the Melancthon Megaquarry. This unprecedented application for a 2400 acre quarry over 200 feet below the watertable must be stopped.  Since Minister of Natural Resources Linda Jeffrey has extended the period for comments until July 11th, we have three things that will help.
