Document Description
The project is a proposed sand extraction operation and reclamation plan located ~5 miles southwest of the community of snelling in Merced County. The project site consists of ~42 acres of a larger parcel (~321.1 acres in size) located north of Youd Road, adjacent to and south of the Merced River, and east of Highway 59. The site is accessed by turning east from Highway 59 onto a private road located between Youd Road and the Highway 59 Merced River bridge. The project applicant proposes to mine a total of ~2.2 million cy of sand for construction aggregate uses. Mining and site reclamation would occur in two phases over ~10 yrs. The project would establish a "revegetation strip" of riparian plant species parallel to the river along the northern boundary of the project site. The project revegetation plan would establish grassland on the project site to serve future grazing activities, and includes plantings of elderberry, cottonwood, and valley oak onsite.
