I seem to recall that StoneCo (Ottowa Lake and/or Maybee MI facilities) was frequently on the Quarterly Non-Compliance lists. You can check them out here:
Seems like the compliance history of the company would be one more arrow in your quiver.

Stoneco of Michigan has applied to Ross Township (Kalamazoo Area, Richland and Gull Lake) for a special exception use permit to allow the establishment of a gravel mining and extraction operation. Citizens are mobilizing, and we have quite a bit of research generated already, but I thought I would send out a note through E-M to get any insight into other’s experiences either fighting these gravel pits or living in their vicinity. Thank you for any thoughts, advice, or experience you’d like to share.
