William Dickson Waller Road - Tacoma, Washington
The William Dickson Waller Road Site is a 40-acre surface mine located on Waller Road and 48th Street East in Pierce County. Sitts & Hill Engineers worked with the William Dickson Company in getting permits from Puget Sound Clean Air Agency for their new rock crushers. We also went to hearing and later to court to allow the William Dickson Company to continuing their concrete crushing and recycling operation and to maintain their contractorâ€™s yard on the property.
The William Dickson is one of the largest demolition contractors in the county and that operation fills the hole after the mining is completed. The Department of Natural Resources required the William Dickson to provide a new reclamation plan combining the side by side mines both under their ownership. Sitts & Hill Engineers prepared this plan along with the Countyâ€™s grading and drainage plan and submitted them for review and approval.
Sitts & Hill Engineers and an appraiser assisted in preparing reports and justification to obtain reduced taxes on the site after a large increase by Pierce County.
