Three main points:
1. The Park is closed and if the springs are compromised and ooze pollutants or contaminants it could be closed indefinitely.
2. The map shows that if this pit goes ahead then a huge piece of the basin could become a mine as well.
3. The government of Alberta has serious questions and concerns about these gravel pits and there is great concern that attempts are being made to keep these concerns from the public. Visit the Instagram account, savebighillspringspark
