This is not a place for a Rock Quarry. Water pollution to the Columbia River, Washougal River, McCloskey Creek, other Tributaries and well water contamination for area residents. J.L. Stordahl has been sued for water pollution and breaking rules of operation. They keep paying the fines and operating with continued disregard. The best solution is not be given this operating permit, period. The state of Washington should buy this land from Weyerhaeuser and keep it in forest preservation and preserved conservation And not destroy the Columbia Gorge.

A better solution would be for the county to grant an easement through forest acreage that the Quarry company could construct their own private road down to Hwy 14 and not use Mabee Mines!

No... Highway 14 cannot support even 10% of the stated truck volume. The existing truck traffic is already a nuisance to residents trying to travel highway speeds, not to mention all the accidents.
