What is the reason for dig'in these holes anyways? They just get filled in with high water anyways! Is it a money grab?

Gravel mining is a huge industry in B.C. Every foot of roadway, every foundation for every house and building, every driveway, sidewalk and parking lot require gravel. It is the reason the Coquitlam river has been abandoned by the authorities. It is the reason the St;olo have applied for gravel licenses in the Fraser. It is the reason there is a gravel crusher right next to Norrish. Yes, to sell.

Dont forget its not just the actual road, sidewalk.... that require the gravel, but each one needs a base of some sort which is also made up of gravel. Ive wondered before what percentage of the GVRD is actually covered by some sort of man made structure?

I'm glad my people are using the gravel for a good cause, I wish they would take more! There is no shortage of gravel, so someone might as well use it!

No problem getting good use from it. The really unfortunate thing is that the most readily accessible gravel beds are usually near or in rivers and the siltation that results from gravel extraction can (as has been the case with the Coquitlam) choke off a river. Where it is done responsibly and with regard to the environmental impact it is fine. When it is done with the bottom line as the only consideration, the potential for disaster is greatly increased.
