Our Mission Statement:
“The preservation of the health and safety of our community in relation to the current Long’s Quarry and the proposed Melrose Quarry. Our concerns lie with the planning of our community to support residential growth and sustain agriculture. We are concerned about the adverse affects that quarry operations may have on the rights of the citizens of this community.”
CAMQ is a group of Tyendinaga Township residents who are concerned about a proposal to develop a new quarry beside the existing Long’s Quarry at the corner of Melrose and Shannonville Roads, Township of Tyendinaga, Hastings County. The group formed in 2013 over concerns that the dewatering needed for the proposed Melrose Quarry would extend the impacts of current quarrying activities on the area’s groundwater supply. Area residents and farms have no access to municipal water supplies.
