The operation, which was photographed near the Kendall Bridge over the weekend, could be under legal permit from the Department of the Environment, although this has not been confirmed.

A request for information from DOE via email has not yet obtained a response.

Indications are that the activity on the Sittee River may have been going on for a while now and there are complaints of heavy sedimentation downstream.

We await a response from the Department of the Environment and will post an update when that expected response is received.
