AWARE Simcoe Public Meeting

“Water is Life”

Learn more about the Proposed Mega-Quarry in
Melancthon Township

An enormous 2300 acre aggregate pit mine has been proposed just north of Shelburne. This would be the largest quarry in Ontario and the second largest in North America. The company says 600 million litres of water per day will be pumped out of the huge pit. The water supply for an estimated 1,000,000 people would be affected. Five major river systems begin in Melancthon and flow outward in all directions. Malancthon sits firmly atop an aquifer that is a significant water resource of the Greater Golden Horseshoe region and is directly adjacent to the Alliston aquifer.
