PLU: Operating clay mine Z: Open Space 160 ac minimum GP: Open Space

Document Description
The proposed project is an amendment to the 1979 Reclamation Plan for a mine currently operated by Pacific Custom Materials, Inc. The mine produces lightweight aggregate under Conditional Use Permit (CUP) 0212 approved in 1953; the CUP expires in 2045. The proposed project would amend the 1979 reclamation plan to revise the finished contours to expand the quarry footprint by 21 acres and change the reclamation contours of the pit bottom from ~70 vertical feet below ground level to ~110 vertical ft below ground level. It also eliminates two ponds, and will be graded to allow all surface water to pass through the site and not be impounded.
