I've worked with numerous clients that have told me unanimously that they will never look at or buy a home anywhere near an area where there are gravel pits due to the noise from the trucks, the decrease in air quality, contamination of ground water and the issues with wells going dry.

It is much more difficult to sell a property near a quarry due to the noise and traffic. Nobody wants to have a constant flow of dump trucks passing in front of their property, especially not if you have pets and/or children. ... I cannot say an exact percent of how much your property value will decrease, but it will definitely decrease in value.

I saw your PitSense sign and decided to look it up, and to see what it was about locally. I realized the "proposed" pit ... was literally right next door to us and the "McCormick Pit" was just south. My wife and I run a small home business dealing with Nutrition and rehabilitation of animals and Chronic Issues such as Heaves (COPD) and other Chronic problems. To realize that the air quality might drop through the floor with these pits, and truck traffic is devastating.
