This course introduces students to the planning and management of aggregate resources (sand, gravel, and stone). These resources are critical to infrastructure and urban development and are often subject to land use/environmental issues and conflicts. Course topics related to aggregate resources include relevant legislation, geology, economics, site plans, licensing, technical/peer reviews, water resources, pit and quarry rehabilitation and after-use strategies, and significant tribunal decisions. Emphasis will be on practical applications and 'real world' issues.
