West Manchester Township Environmental Resource Manager David Hopkins of LWB talks to a group of students about how quarries operate, what they quarry and manufacture and problems they encounter. Here David holds a 2-foot long drill core taken from the floor of the quarry.
 
West Manchester Township Faulting within the Piedmont Lowlands Section is very common. Here at York Building Products Westgate Quarry, several faults are seen in the walls. If you cannot spot the fracture, trace the line from the upper left to the lower right of the picture. For scale, the height of the wall in this picture is 40-foot.
