Reclamation

Environment & Safety

Environmentally Sensitive Reclamation

An integral part of RiverStone’s quarry planning and operations is the eventual reclamation of the site, once the transitional use of the property is complete.  Reclaimed quarries provide excellent sites for a wide range of end uses.  Several of our former quarries now serve as recreational lakes and wildlife habitat sites, providing tranquil and serene settings for both our human; as well as our natural neighbors.

The photo above was at one time a quarry near Galesburg, IL. It was fully reclaimed into a viable ecosystem by 1982.
