This Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) has been prepared by the County of Solano, California (lead agency) for the Lake Herman Quarry Expansion Project pursuant to CEQA and the CEQA Guidelines (California Administrative Code Section 15000 et seq.). Environmental effects of the Project
Therefore, the beneficial use of inert waste as a source of fill (rather than utilizing higher-grade material which could be put to more sustainable uses) is central to securing the restoration of quarries that leave a positive environmental legacy. Consequently, the use of inert waste as a substitute engineering fill should constitute the ...
proposes to use 14 existing quarries and establish 2 new quarries along the LCR in order to meet its responsibilities. Reclamation has prepared this programmatic Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate the potential impacts associated with establishing new quarries, as well
Sep 15, 2008· This research focuses on the environmental aspects of rehabilitating abandoned quarries and their future designation land use, emphasizing the theme of abandoned quarries in Israel. Quarry rehabilitation legislation guidelines obligate implementation of reclamation but, unfortunately, these have proven to be ineffective.

ANSI/NSC 373 Sustainable Production of Natural Dimension Stone and Natural Stone Council Chain of Custody standards use a four-tiered rating system created in a mechanism that differentiates natural dimension stone companies that demonstrate environmental leadership through commitment to sustainable operations and continued innovation.
Instead of getting this water in the usual way, by drilling several new wells, Burnsville has entered into an agreement with the quarry to use some of the water it has been pumping into the river. In addition to helping solve the quarry’s problem with the excess water, the city is reducing the impacts on aquifers and nearby calcareous fens.
Quarrying is the process of removing rock, sand, gravel or other minerals from the ground in order to use them to produce materials for construction or other uses. So, a quarry is any such working on the surface of the earth where minerals are extracted.
The research area (limestone quarry Mokra near Brno) was evaluated by semi - quantitative evaluation of the environmental, productive and social potential of the site. Based on the results, the ...

Initially, the BLM considered using a “categorical exclusion,” the lowest level of environmental review, to approve the hydrological study. Due to the intense interest and controversy surrounding the quarry project, the BLM opened a public scoping process on the …
A built environment can be seen as an “urban deposit” of concrete ready for extraction through recycling. Recycled aggregate use is increasing rapidly in Australia for suitable uses, with about 80 per cent or more of roadbase in the Sydney region being recycled C&D material.

A drone-derived digital version of a quarry or pit enables staff such as geologists to optimise blast designs, as well as accurately control and document differences in grade across the site. For example, one valuable approach is to overlay a quarry’s block model over the drone’s contour line output.

A quarry is a place where rocks, sand, or minerals are extracted from the surface of the Earth. A quarry is a type of mine called an open-pit mine, because it is open to the Earth's surface.Another type of mine, a sub-surface mine, consists of underground tunnels or shafts.. The most common purpose of quarries is to extract stone for building materials.
Limestone, composed mostly of calcium carbonate, is used primarily to produce Portland cement for the building industry. Other products that use limestone include breakfast cereal, paint, calcium supplements, antacid tablets, paper and white roofing materials. Limestone is a karst-forming rock, which produce ...

This is not an interim land use. The landscape is blotted with destructive pits and quarries, and species of all kinds endure permanent negative impacts. A more detailed picture of the environmental impact of aggregate mining is outlined in a 2005 legal challenge to the expansion of an existing quarry in the Niagara Escarpment.
Compared to other regions in England, the quarrying industry on Mendip was rather late in developing.
