Aggregate Producers of Wisconsin

Local Control & The Provision of Aggregate

Local ordinances have discouraged the opening and operation of quarries by imposing new operational restrictions and increasing compliance costs. For DOT road construction projects, vast amounts of aggregate are needed and the further a supplier is from a project, the more expensive it is to transport material to job sites. Unnecessarily burdensome restrictions and requirements for quarries have resulted in fewer suppliers who are located further from job sites and has driven up Wisconsin’s cost of construction significantly.

APW has been actively working with all involved stakeholders on meaningful reforms that provide uniformity in quarry regulation. If you wish to provide any additional perspective on how this issue has impacted you, please contact APW’s government relations team.
