Document Description
A 15-year permit term renewal for a previously approved gravel mining and processing operation which has been permitted and operating since 1969. The project includes a Conditional Use Permit extension, Special Permit extension, Reclamation Plan review, and review of financial assurance cost estimates for a surface mining and processing operation involving the annual extraction of 40,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel from Trinity River gravel bars at the extraction site over a 15-year period. The method of surface rock removal involves skimming with loader, scraper, and excavator. Aggregate materials are temporarily stockpiled and loaded onto trucks or off-road haulers and then transported to the existing adjacent processing site or to off-site locations. Processing operations involve material crushing and/or hauling; on-site storage of materials; production of asphalt; and weighing and hauling by truck. Site improvements existing at the southern portion of the processing site include a hot mix asphalt plant, rock crusher, screen settling basin, gate, office, and scales. Under the previous permit, hours of operations were restricted daylight hours Monday through Saturday, generally 7:00 am to 6:00 pm.
