Quarry Owner Hopes to Expand In Face of Environmental Law Violations

Croell Redi-Mix owns the space known as Perli Quarry, on U.S. Highway 16 near Reptile Gardens and Bear Country USA, and hopes to expand their mining operation reports the Rapid City Journal. The site is on the main route from Rapid City to South Dakota's Mount Rushmore monument which could be an issue with increased travel and dust in the area.

On February 8, the Pennington County Commission approved a construction permit, which area residents opposed. The Pennington County Commission will consider an appeal at a hearing scheduled for 4 p.m. March 2 in the County Administration Building in Rapid City. 

Croell's mining location in Wyoming had several environmental violations in recent years.
