Project Description:

The applicant proposes to develop and operate a new sand and gravel mine on a parcel located south of Clifford Road and west of Red Schoolhouse Road. Presently the 90.4-acre parcel is used primarily for agriculture. The proposed life of mine is 22.7 acres. The mine will include excavation of bank-run gravel reserves using a pay loader, excavator, and bulldozer. A portable screener, and crusher, will be used to process the material. Mining is proposed to go below the seasonal high-water table. Traffic from the mine is estimated to be an average of 24 truck trips per day. The mine will be reclaimed as a 13.9-acre pond and a 1.9-acre pond, and the above water table perimeters of the mine will be graded to a one on two slope.
