Spruce Valley Sehlstrom Gravel Pit Dewatering Project

Spruce Valley Corporation is proposing to dewater an existing 22-acre gravel pit (Sehlstrom Pit) located in Spruce Township, Minnesota. The pit will be dewatered to expose the gravel in the existing pit, where it will be mined and processed on-site.
