ALBERTA – Sturgeon County council could let gravel pits operate within 400 m of homes under new regulations now headed for a public hearing.

Sturgeon County councillors voted 4-3 in favour of first reading of proposed land use bylaw amendments related to resource extraction during the Jan. 24 council meeting.

They also voted 6-1 to enact a long list of measures by Sept. 30 should the new resource extraction rules be approved. These included the compilation of a groundwater monitoring policy and a review of the allocation model for the Community Aggregate Payment Levy.
