EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
The existing on-site land use dry grazing. Z: AG-40 GP: General Agriculture (A/G) and Open Space/Resource Conservation (OS/RC)
Document Description
Teichert Aggregates is requesting a Quarry Excavation Permit (QX-0500847) to mine and reclaim approximately 790 acres. The project components include dry mining, conveyance to the processing facilities, accessory support uses, third party transport of products to the market, and reclamation. The mining would occur in four phases and would take approximately 40 years to complete. Maximum mining depths for each phase would range from 110 feet to 225 feet below current grade. Materials mined at Vernalis West and East would be transported via electric conveyor to Teichert's existing Vernalis Central facility for processing and sail. The estimated yield of Vernalis West and East is approximately 142 million tons of processed aggregate. The additional mining operations would increase the existing plant operations from approximately 4 million tons per year to 6 million tons per year. The reclamation plan would return 345 acres of the mining areas to the original dry grazing use to the existing grade with the remaining 445 acres below the existing grade.
