Jefferson Co. sued over gravel mining project – PDN


PORT TOWNSEND, Wash. — Iron Mountain Quarry has sued Jefferson County for denying it a permit to develop a gravel mining operation near Port Ludlow.

The Peninsula Daily News reports that the county wants the company to do a full review of the project’s impact on traffic, habitat and noise.

County development director Al Scalf says the company hasn’t proven that the operation won’t negatively affect the environment.

The company says the county’s decision not to grant a stormwater permit is “arbitrary and capricious.”

Iron Mountain attorney Keith Moxon says the company has provided all the information required.

A hearing is set for April 30 in Jefferson County Superior Court.
