Pike and Idexx Release Specifics of Agreement

Courtesy of an article in the PPH, which also featured critiques of the agreement:

* Pike Industries will drop its original plan for an asphalt or concrete plant.

*Pike will not operate the quarry on the Spring Street property closest to Idexx Laboratories.

* Pike will operate the quarry with limits on sound and vibration, with no more than eight explosions annually.

* Pike will limit the magnitude of the blasts to substantially lower levels than what has occurred in the past, and to one-quarter of the legal limit.

* Pike will eliminate any dust.

*Pike will greatly reduce the visual impact of the quarry on the Five Star Industrial Park with berms, fences and buffers.

*Truck traffic will be limited to 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with no increase in volume.
