The Washington County mining operation near Morrow is a state of the art operation.
Operated by a crew of six this facility is able to supply the crushed limestone needs of the Road Department all year by operating only a few months of the year
The quarry and mining operation which is owned by Washington County is still regulated by the Department of Labor (MSHA), and must abide by their rules and regulations along with unscheduled inspections.
By owning this facility the County has eliminated the need to purchase materials from outside sources by as much as 90 %.
This operation will continue to supply material to improve our gravel roads and will provide substantial savings to the citizens of Washington County .
