We are looking to purchase a home in Canton. Can anyone tell us about the sand quarry on Turnpike St.? Any health concerns in the area because of it?

That is Will Sand and Gravel for many decades! My daughter's pre-school = the Blue Hill Montessori School is abbutting this property. There were never any instances of concern on health - hey why would there be contaminants in a gravel property? They were always good neighbors. There is a contaminated site in Canton (PCBs in remediation) but it is not WS&G!

I have not heard of any problems but I would suggest calling the health department in Canton.

Canton is a great place to live. If you are worried about the quarry simply research online or call town hall: Trust me if their were or are any known health issues because of the quarry you should find plenty of data online.

Here is every property on the market for sale:…

No major health concerns. I have been actively chedking commercial properties for a client on Turnpike St. and the town requires all proper site inspections to be accomplished before new construction can be built on any land, including 21E which reviews whether a site has contamination or not. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions.

Thank you for your response. It is really just a sand quarry or do you know if it's something more that is being built there. One of the homes we are considering is right on Turnpike St thus the concern.
