The Schiel Quarry is owned by Mathy Construction. It is located on County Road 25 in La Crescent Township. County 25 is a narrow, winding road that boasts nice homes, farms, and businesses like WXOW TV. Despite County 25 being steep, narrow and winding it is frequented by walkers and bicyclists who want a great workout.
This quarry has been mostly dormant for at least 20 years. I know because I must pass it on my way to and from town. If Mathy begins actively mining again we will have rock filled trucks running downhill into La Crescent. In addition to many homes these trucks will have to pass the the new Springbrook senior living center, a park with playground and the city swimming pool, and either the elementary school or the middle and high school.
