Millington Quarry, NJ license approved for 2015

Millington Quarry, New Jersey, has been granted a license to continue quarrying for 2015 by the Bernards Township Committee.  The approval allows the quarry to remove 20,000 tons of material from mine.

“We have filed this application in earnest,” Millington Quarry’s attorney, Mark Morgan, told the Township Committee before a final vote on an issue that has been addressed at a number of meetings this spring, most recently in April.

Morgan called approval of the license “another step in moving to get this property to finality.” He added that the quarry will seek to renew the license in 2016.

Following the meeting, Morgan said the quarry is now involved in litigation against Tilcon NY, the former operator of quarrying operations for several years until 2010, when Morgan said Tilcon “abandoned the property…without meeting its obligations.”

Quarry representatives are now asserting publicly that Tilcon, as the operator, was responsible for trucking in soil to the quarry site, some of which was later found to have come from contaminated locations.

The discovery of that soil sparked a lawsuit – settled in an agreement with the township in April 2014 – and a cleanup plan under the oversight of the state Department of Environmental Protection.
