Hanson Quarry Shut Down

Hanson Quarry on Quarry Road in Downingtown was shut down from doing their

quarry operations by DEP due to constant and  persistent violations on or about Friday May 5th.

Over the past several years there have been a number of sink holes in the area some of

which have dewatered West Valley Creek. Hanson Quarry has been repairing these sink

holes. But during the same time flows to Valley Creek have been inconsistent and off color. At

this time I have no further details but will be following up with other interested parties to

see what this means for the future of West Valley Creek.
