Tiller’s Scandia mine to open this week
Posted By Amanda Bayhi On September 3, 2013 @ 3:11 pm In Aggbeat Online,News | No Comments
The mine won the unanimous approval of the Scandia City Council in February , despite concerns from some nearby residents about the mine’s effects on the St. Croix River and possible Indian burial grounds, as well as truck traffic and noise.
The approval included 83 conditions on the conditional-use permit and 31 conditions on the annual operating permit.
The project is limited to 3.3 years . It will begin with vegetation removal and preliminary grading.
Tiller Corp., the company that owns the mine, said it will extract 1.2 million tons of gravel from 64 acres of the 114-acre site before reclaiming the area.
