Lexington Quarry Expansion
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
A Notice of Preparation for a proposed expansion of Lexington Quarry by 5.6 acres was prepared and circulated to Responsible Agencies and the public in October 2001. The project description was subsequently changed. The proposed project now includes two possible scenarios. Scenario 1 would modify the quarry boundaries to include an existing stilling basing and a graded slope adjacent to Limekiln Road that are currently outside the existing stilling basin adjacent to Limekiln Road and an additional 7.6 acres along the southerly portion of the east quarry face where additional mining could occur. Scenario 2 would include the expansion proposed under Scenario 1 and an additional 7.6 acres for a total of 67.2 acres covered by the Use Permit. Both scenarios include modifications to the existing mining plan and reclamation plan for the quarry floor, the east face and the lower benches of the west face of the quarry. Bothe scenarios propose extending operating hours.
