Mad River Township, Clark County, Ohio
Enon Sand & Gravel requests a 60 day extension to comply with the OEPA requests in letter dated 5-29-18. Peruse either document below.
DECISION IS HANDED DOWN FROM THE OHIO RECLAMATION COMMISSION
The Ohio Reclamation Commission did not rule in our favor. CAM had contested the amendments and modifications approved by the Ohio Division of Natural Resources (ODNR) on July 13, 2017. The Ohio Reclamation Commission found that Enon, Sand and Gravel complied with all the statutory requirements required and is now allowed to:
- Add 398.8 acres to the permit IM-340
- Increase the depth of mining
- De-water the mining site
- Use blasting in the mining process
Working through the legal channels, the members of the CAM board have been shocked that Ohio law provides very little protection of our community’s water and property rights. Industrial mining companies are allowed to drain the water from our wells and detonate explosives next to housing developments.
However, THE FIGHT IS NOT OVER! Two significant battle fronts still exist.
- Enon Sand and Gravel has yet to secure a water discharge permit from the Ohio EPA.
- Enon Sand and Gravel is engaged in a fight with local zoning authorities in federal court case in an attempt to avoid local zoning laws.
CAM will not stop until all avenues to stop the proposed limestone mine have been exhausted. CAM will continue to post updates and fundraising events on this website and the Facebook page.
Please join in our opposition to this company by becoming a CAM member. Volunteers are always needed. Thank you.
