NEW ENGLAND GOVERNORS' CONFERENCE RELEASES AGGREGATE REPORT

 NEW ENGLAND GOVERNORS' CONFERENCE RELEASES AGGREGATE REPORT
 BOSTON, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The New England Governors' Conference, Inc., announced today the availability of a comprehensive report entitled "Construction Aggregates Demand in the New England States." The report presents the results of a study of the past, present and future demands in each of the New England States for aggregates (gravel, sand and crushed rocks).
 On announcing the report, a spokesman for the conference stated that construction aggregates are essential in all phases of development and construction. The aggregate demand study was undertaken to assist all who are involved with planning and construction in New England to take appropriate steps to insure the continued availability of those essential raw materials.
 Study Manager Dr. Arthur Socolow noted that many natural aggregate resource occurrences have been depleted over the years by continued extraction. Others have become unavailable as a result of various types of zoning and land use restrictions. The result is that major users of aggregates have gradually had to bring in aggregate resources from greater and greater distances at increasing costs due to haulage charges. The net result has been to add greatly to the cost of construction projects.
 The New England Aggregates Demand Study, sponsored by the New England Governors' Conference, Inc., was funded primarily by the Minerals Management Service of the U.S. Department of the Interior. Their support is based on a concern that there be adequate raw materials to meet the needs of the economy in the various regions of the country.
 The New England Governors' Conference, Inc. is sponsoring, again with primary funding from the Minerals Management Service, a follow-up study on the locations and quantities of remaining available sand and gravel resources. By combining the results of the demand study with those showing where, and how much, sand and gravel remain available in New England, industry and government should be able to make appropriate plans to provide for the needs of construction essential to New England's continued economic vitality.
 The New England Governors' Conference, Inc. promotes New England's economic development and provides a forum which allows the region's governors to meet to discuss and resolve problems and issues which are regional in nature.
 Copies of the report, "Construction Aggregates Demand in the New England States" may be obtained by contacting the New England Governors' Conference, Inc. at 76 Summer St., Boston, MA 02110 or by calling 617-423-6900.
