Document Description
The project sponsors propose to amend the existing Reclamation Plan approved for the quarry pursuant to the Surface Mining and Reclamation Act of 1975 (SMARA), (Amended Reclamation Plan ARP82 approved by the County in 1982). The proposed ARP incorporates a final grading plan, drainage system, flooding the Marin Quarry Bowl and revegetation. After completion of the mining operation, all structures, equipment and storage facilities would be removed, and the site reclaimed and revegetated in accordance with the reclamation and revegetation plan. The majoy project components of the ARP include: cutting the channel to the bay and flooding the Quarry bowl; creating three stockpile areas, stockpiling overburden and mixing pond fines into the soil in the northeast quadrant; creating a surcharge berm in the northwest quadrant; creating the South Hill soil cover; and general revegetation. As approved the reclamation plan is valid until December 31, 2024. Following termination of quarrying activities, the Quarry owner proposes to level the visual mitigation stockpiles, and flood the Quarry pit and connect it to San Francisco Bay to create a marina, suitable for commercial and residential development on the property.
