USG Plaster City Quarry Expansion and Well No. 3 Project
SBE - Subsequent EIR
Present Land Use
The proposed project consists of approval of a Conditional Use Permit from Imperial County for the development of a new production well, Well No. 3, and an associated pipeline to provide water to the USG Quarry. Additional land use entitlements from the County are not needed for mining and reclamation activities under the Quarry expansion. However, because Well No. 3 would provide water to support Quarry operations, the DSEIR evaluates potential environmental impacts associated with mining and reclamation activities under the Quarry expansion, for full disclosure and to provide the appropriate CEQA review for responsible agencies. The DSEIR also evaluates potential environmental impacts associated with the restoration of the Viking Ranch site (207 acres) and preservation of the Old Kane Springs Road site (121 acres). USG identified these sites for preservation to provide compensatory mitigation for impacts to 139 acres of waters of the United States at the Quarry. Although the Viking Ranch restoration site and Old Kane Springs Road preservation site would not require entitlements from Imperial County, the DSEIR evaluates the environmental impacts of these actions for full disclosure and to provide the appropriate CEQA review for responsible agencies.
