Document Description
The proposed project for a conditional use permit (Thoreson CUP Application No. 06-014) to remove sand from a 6.9-acre site in Merced County, north of the Merced River on El Capitan Way near the community of Cressey. The site is currently fallow pasture with horse corrals occupying rougly one acre of the site. The proposed project would remove approximately 75,000 cubic yards of sand and/or aggregate from the project site within a five-year period, ending in 2012. The maximum depth of mining activities would be approximately 14 feet below the existing ground surface. The excavation activities, however, would not result in a "pit" or depression but would instead lower an existing "bench" area to approximately the elevation of a lower river terrace. Excavation would be carried out with a single front loader and excavator and would be hauled off-site. No on-site processing of materials is proposed under the requested CUP.
