Southern Aggregates wins council approval for Livingston, LA gravel pit

Southern Aggregates has won approval from Livingston Parish Council, LA, with changes to the gravel mining regulations.

The gravel mining rule changes include a different way of calculating setbacks from adjacent homes, shorter berm heights and earlier hours for trucks to load gravel each morning, the Advocate reports.

But some residents said the changes will diminish their quality of life.

The company plans to locate a mining operation next to Olson’s neighborhood of Oak Hills Subdivision. The new setback rules could put both the berm and the mining operation closer to homeowners’ property lines, residents says.

But in a last-minute bow to the community before adopting the rule changes, the proposal was amended to restrict operations to five days per week for pits next to named subdivisions and to ensure the pits are closed on major holidays.
