Depth of excavation will be 8 to 10 feet below existing grade. The short-term operation is expected to be completed within 6 months. Upon completion of mining 2.5 acres will become part of the existing, adjacent farm pond and the remaining upland portions, including the haul road, will be seeded/vegetated.
