Document Description
The proposed project is a Mining Approval Amendment that includes changes to the mining plan, reclamation plan, and financial assurance. This application for a formal Mining Plan Amendment has been submitted to fulfill a requirement of the 1995 permit review, and to incorporate remedial grading and revised final quarry grading contours into the mining plan. Corresponding changes to the revegetation plan are also included in the application. The Mining Plan Amendment consists of significant changes to the drainage plan including creation of a retention pond in the south corner of the quarry and conversion of the existing settling ponds into a series of detention ponds. In addition, the Amendment recognizes the buttress fill and quarry pit backfill, constructed under emergency conditions, which were not evaluated conditions, which were not evaluated in the 1976 EIR nor approved by the COC 75-0590-PQ. The project is located southwest of the intersection of Mt. Hermon Road and Conference Drive, and encompasses three separate parcels with a total area of 270 acres.
