Coyote Hills quarry filled in

Can you imagine how much earth it took to fill in the quarry at Coyote Hills? Thousands of dump trucks for sure.

I don’t know how many years it required, but I snapped a photo in 2002 when the quarry was still in service.

It was shut down and an agreement was reached, in exchange for keeping it open longer, to fill in the quarry.

Now it’s done, although I’m not sure if it’s entirely done, but enough so that RVs and camp sites are in place thanks to East Bay Regional Parks.

Read all about it in your local newspaper.
