OK Industries to complete environment plan on proposed rock quarry

OK Industries has agreed to complete an environmental management plan on the property of a proposed rock quarry in the District of Highlands, near Victoria, British Columbia – according to a report by Goldstream News Gazette.

The report says the company sent a letter to the District of Highlands and the Highlands District Community Association to voluntarily conduct the plan for the 66-acre property on Millstream Road. Ok Industries intends carry out the initiative to improve its understanding of the property and explore the potential of a viable operations plan with a reduced environmental footprint.

“It is our intention that through this work we will be able to address concerns that we have heard in your community,” says the letter.

“Our goal is to explore with the Highlands’ community a broader land-use plan for our property that considers the community’s interests, needs and concerns and still enables access to areas of aggregate necessary to sustain a viable business operation. We believe it’s possible to strike this important balance.”

OK Industries applied to the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources to add a quarry to the site. However, the Highlands District Community Association is opposed to the proposal, which it says could impact the community’s ground water as the aquifer lies partly beneath the site.

OK Industries hopes to have the draft plan completed by the end of the year, the report concludes.
