OFA recommended that amendments to the Aggregate Resources Act also ensure the protection of private water wells and that all water-related concerns, including private water wells, be an integral component of the aggregate licensing/approvals process. OFA also recommended that farmer concerns related to the negative effects of dust, noise and/or truck traffic on agricultural operations along haul routes be considered during the aggregate licensing/approvals process. OFA believes that the negative impacts of gravel truck traffic on municipal roads should be addressed. OFA also believes rehabilitation of former above-the-water-table aggregate sites in agricultural areas should be prioritize back to agricultural use. OFA further recommended permitting the movement of aggregates extracted from one farmer-owned site and used for personal use at another farm site where both sites are operated as a single farm entity. OFA also recommended raising the overall fee or royalty assessed per tonne to rehabilitate Ontario’s legacy of “abandoned” pits and quarries and to compensate municipalities situated along haul routes even though the pit or quarry is located in another municipality.
