When RJ Grondin & Sons completed mining operations at its Prout’s Pit location off Black Point Road in Scarborough, we had mined over a million cubic yards of material from the site. This was over and above the sand and gravel that prior owners had sold over the years. Needless to say, this left behind a very large hole that needed to be addressed.
Working closely with Sebago Technics, the Town of Scarborough and Maine DEP, we came up with the innovative solution of filling the inactive gravel pit with water, creating a 28 acre pond, and subdividing the remaining land into a thirty lot subdivision. This development also includes a common park with open areas, as well as a swimming beach, and parking for a dozen vehicles. The Landings at Grondin Pond now have some of the most valuable homes in Scarborough.
