Number of Blasts is Sticking Point in 'Pidexx' Conflict

[A]n official from Idexx said the company continues
to want rezoning instead. That zoning would limit the annual number of blasts in
the quarry to an average of the number set off over the previous five years. The
Idexx official, facilities manager Dick Daigle, said that would mean about five
blasts a year, although Westbrook's city engineer said the number could be
closer to 10. Pike officials said anything less than 20 blasts a year would so
limit the amount of rock it could mine from the quarry that it wouldn't make
financial sense to keep it operating.
