- NOTE: Response to Comments NOTE: Review Per Lead In October 2007, Granite Construction Company, Inc. filed an application with the Yolo County Parks and Resources Deparment (YCPRD) for approval of commercial mining and processing of sand and gravel resources from a site in central unincorporated Yolo County. Approval of the project is considered a discretionary action under CEQA. As such, the YCPRD is the lead agency overseeing the preparation of this EIR for the application for the Granite Esparto Mining and Reclamation Project. The Applicant is requesting approval of a new 30 yr Off Channel Mining Permit to excavate, processm and sell sand gravel resources. The 390 acres project site is located ~1.4 miles north of the town of Esparto, CA, and 27 miles west of Sacramento. The proposed project site is located adjacent to and east of the existing Granite Capay Mining site, a project originally approved in 1996 and revised in 2002.
