Proposed Shantz Station Pit
Capital Paving is proposing to establish a sand and gravel pit on leased farmland at 1195 Foerster Road, south of the village of Maryhill. The company is seeking to remove aggregate materials from the site in phases, with farming continuing prior to and after material is extracted from each phase. At the end of the project, the entire site would be rehabilitated back to prime farmland for ongoing crop production.
The proposed pit is not expected to have any impact on the village of Maryhill, since plans are for trucks to travel between the site and Highway #7 via Shantz Station Road, and then east and west along the highway to construction sites in the area.
Included on this website is an information guide about the proposed pit, as well as technical reports and summaries, newsletters, information about coming events and contact information.
