Present Land Use
Z: S82; GPD: Public agency lands although project site is privately owned; LU: Undeveloped containing floodplain and floodway areas, and limited agricultural use

Document Description
The project would extract 12.5 million tons of sand and gravel over a 12-year period from a 228-acre mining footprint to a depth between 35 and 41 ft below existing ground surface in the El Monte Valley that includes the San Diego River channel. Reclamation and revegetation would begin in year 4 and end in year 16 of the project and restore the site to an ultimate use of protected habitat including recreational trails. A statement of reasons to extinguish access to mineral resources below the proposed mining depth has been prepared.
