How Do I...?

Rock Hill Quarry

The Rock Hill Quarry is located at 2055 North Rockhill Road and in early 2018 it resumed quarry operations after at least 30 years of inactivity.  The Rock Hill Quarry is located in the E Extraction Zoning District which permits Extractive Operations by special exception.  A Federal Court decision stated that quarry operations may continue on the property under the jurisdiction of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP).  PA DEP issued a cessation order in December 2018 and no quarrying has occurred since that time.  The Order is still in place. 

The remaining zoning issue of the asphalt plant use was recently taken away from the East Rockhill Township Zoning Hearing Board as the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas Judge took jurisdiction of the matter by order dated June 18, 2019. A Bucks County Court of Common Pleas trial date of November 12, 2019 has been stayed by Commonwealth Court Order dated November 7, 2019.  The Commonwealth Court has denied the application for Stay of Proceedings and by Court Order the trial is scheduled for March 2, 2020.

The PA DEP Rock Hill Quarry website page is routinely updated with pertinent information.
